The charity achieves its objects through a number of activities which have been developed over a number of years:
The Panacea Museum
Using the charity’s extensive archives, artefacts and film, the Museum tells the story of the Panacea Society – a remarkable religious community formed in the early twentieth century - and other groups related to this subject.
The Centre for the critical Study of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements was introduced in 2015 with a vision to ensure that everyone has access to quality resources to enable education, with a particular focus on the understanding of apocalyptic and millenarian movements. CenSAMM is a non-religious and non-partisan organisation; the Centre seeks to promote academic rigour and critical inquiry, with an inclusive and interdisciplinary scope.
Poverty, sickness and social related grants
Designated to support Bedford and its surrounding local community across a broad range of initiatives and recipients, to provide a range of valuable work and support in the area. The charity now administers this grant programme in house after many years of delivering the project through third-party organisations.
Bedford Giving is a research-driven group of passionate businesses, charities and other partners, who have all come together to form Bedford Giving with a united single goal – to help create a brighter future for the next generation in Bedford. Current activities include a career mentoring scheme, a work experience programme and a residents' grant making panel.
