A Family To Belong To

Woodside church is a family to belong to. A place to come as you are, be loved and meet with God.

Our DNA

At Woodside church we believe that it is not enough to just know what you are doing; you need to know who you are and who you are becoming. The following four statements best summarise who we believe God wants us to be (our plumb-line) – we often refer to these as the Woodside DNA:

  • A family full of grace and truth
  • Called to serve and reflect our community
  • Knowing the word and power of the Spirit
  • Seeking to equip and release everyone in order to bring glory to Jesus

A Multiplying Church

It has often been said that, like the natural world, healthy churches are growing churches. But the truth is that healthy things in the natural world don’t just keep on growing but when healthy, they multiply! In other words, the best sign of a healthy church is a multiplying church – multiplying disciples, ministries, leaders, meetings, sites and multiplying churches.

Alongside this principle God has clearly spoken and called Woodside to be a multiplying church. We began this current season of multiplication in 2012 when we launched our 2nd morning meeting and in January 2019 launched our 3rd meeting at a new site in the west of Bedford.

As we look ahead we are committed to continuing this multiplying story. Multiplying into new towns and cities, neighbourhoods and nations.
