Bedford House

a catalyst for social, economic, and spiritual innovations.

Founding Question

How might a small, under-resourced, group of people, from a variety of faith streams – and none, make a significant difference in our community?


Bedford House Community Ministry is a catalyst for social, economic, and spiritual innovations.


To create spaces where people of all faiths – and none – might engage in “sacred conversations” and experiments – to co-create a community that is ecologically sustainable, socially equitable, and spiritually fulfilling.
