The churches of All Saints and St Thomas, the worship we offer in these places, and our ministry in Houghton Regis are signs of God’s presence – they witness of his enduring love in our town and the communities we serve.
However, following directives from the Archbishop of Canterbury and church authorities, we have suspended all Public Worship to counter the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) among worshippers and visitors. The public celebration of Mass has been suspended. And there will be no public worship or pastoral offices (Weddings, Baptisms, and Funerals) until further notice. And both our churches will remain shut.
Regrettably, the Archbishops have imposed a ban from entering the churches for prayer even on our clergy. Fr Diego will continue to offer a daily Mass for the parish at the Clergy House. Details will be on our Facebook page.

Home Visits by the Parish Priest (or a designated minister)

As time progresses, these directives may be altered in accordance with advice from the Diocese of St Albans, HM Government, and Church of England guidelines.
Thank you for your co-operation.
We held our Christmas Fayre on Saturday 7 December – yes, the same date at the Mayor’s Carol Service. It was a fun and lovely day filled with festive cheer, homemade food, and caroling sung by our choir.

The Parish Barn Dance was held at the Peter Newton Pavilion in Dunstable on Saturday 9 June.
The evening featured a live band, lots of dancing, shared food, fun for the whole family, and a raffle. The yearly fundraising and social event was attended by many people, and it continues to grow in popularity thanks to a number of committed volunteers who organise this and various other activities through the year.
