King’s Arms Project are coming home to Bedford Town Centre

Kirstie with keys to the Guild House

King’s Arms Project, feel like they have found their town centre home as they are moving their teams into Bedford Guild House @Number 56, Harpur Street.

Talking about the move Kirstie Cook, CEO said:

We’ve been feeling for some time that King’s Arms Project clients would benefit from having easy access to our support. Many of our services, such as The Pathways Community and Outreach operate in the town centre and we could see a benefit to being able to house these under our own roof in Bedford. When we heard that Bedford Guild House was to become vacant, we knew this was the place. It was familiar to the King’s Arms Project as we’d run the Friday Night Meeting from there for several years. We have exciting plans to maximise on our ‘High Street’ presence.”

Talking about the King’s Arms Project (KAP) new home in Bedford centre, Kirstie went on to say:

“The move to Bedford Guild House is a brilliant opportunity to play a more active part in the community and reach out to people during their daily life. It gives us and our clients the scope and flexibility to work together in a new way. Bringing everything together in one building rather than having to rent additional spaces also makes good business sense too. At a time when the demand for our services is rising and the cost-of-living crisis is kicking in, we will be able to channel even more of our income directly into the services for our clients.”

KAP have been renting offices at King’s House which is on the outskirts of Bedford. Their links with King’s Arms Church remain strong.

Steve Wilson, elder at King’s Arms Church said: “The King’s Arms Project was founded with a desire to support for those most in need across Bedford, and we’re delighted to champion Kirstie and her team as they move into their new home at Bedford Guild House. We’re celebrating their desire to bring King’s Arms Project closer to the Bedford community and continuing to serve our town.”
