Colin leads a team of neighbourhood chaplains and is on the staff at Hockliffe Street Baptist Church, Leighton Buzzard. Our team of chaplains aim to bring hope to our streets and encouragement to our local community.

We would like to offer encouragement and support during this difficult time of COVID restrictions. Please see our wellbeing advice and tips page and get in touch if you would like a friendly call or online chat.

If you are seeking to understand who God is and how you can get a new perspective on what life is all about please take a look around this web site to see videos and articles about who is Jesus, and how can I have faith. You will find many more short videos of short prayers and regular Thought Of The Day meditations on the Leighton Buzzard Neighbourhood Chaplains page and Youtube station.

Do you have questions? Are you feeling isolated and long to have a coffee and get together with others? These can be lonely times and it can be difficult to be positive. We are here to help, online and by phone. We are good listeners and plan to run some online friendship support groups called LifeofHope. Call us to find out more on 07731 794635 or email colin@chaplains.org.u

What is the meaning and purpose of life? If there is a God how can I know? Why should I read and trust what the Bible says?

Christianity addresses these and the many other basic questions that human beings have asked since the dawn of time. Check out information on this website on exploring Christianity to find out more.
