St Mark’s Resource Centre
The Bedfordshire Resource Centre is located at St Mark’s Church, Calder Rise, Bedford MK41 7UY.
Teachers from all schools have access to over 500 books, plus videos and ICT materials on a range of faiths. The Bedfordshire Agreed Syllabus unit boxes and diocesan boxes of artefacts are available for schools to borrow.
Godly Play parable boxes and the Liturgical Clock are available to borrow, together with books for Sunday School, All Age Worship and mid-week and holiday clubs.
A website http://www.beds-re-resources.org.uk has been set up for teachers and parishes to borrow resources. All order forms on the website are sent to Ruth Garman at the Diocesan Office, who co-ordinates the orders with the staff at St Mark’s.
The church office is open from 9 am – 5 pm weekdays (often open at other times as well) and teachers are welcome to browse and order resources online.
