Putnoe Heights Church June 2017

Putnoe Heights church was built as a Methodist church following the closure of the chapel in Bromham Road in 1955. The building was begun in 1956 and opened in 1957 and is decidedly Italianate in style. The buildings on the right hand side of the photograph above were added in 1994/95. Putnoe Heights was originally part of the Bedford North Circuit.

Since 1973 the church has been in partnership with the Anglican Saint Mark’s, Brickhill a partnership unique in Bedfordshire. Both churches welcome worshippers from both backgrounds and work very closely together. Since 2011 Putnoe Heights has been part of the North Bedfordshire Circuit.
