The Parish of Abbots Langley

Welcome to our Parish

Welcome to the website of the Parish of Abbots Langley in Hertfordshire.

Here you will be able to find something about the worship, activities, purpose, and the history of the Anglican Church in the Parish of Abbots Langley, which is part of the Diocese of St Albans within the Church of England.

St Lawrence Church is open seven days a week, from 9.30 am to 5.45 pm Monday to Saturday, and from 7.45 am to 7.00 pm on Sundays.  Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are available in the Breakspear Room every Tuesday between 10.15 am and 12.15 pm - access is via St Lawrence Church or the door directly into the Breakspear Room with easy access for the disabled or buggies (the Breakspear Room is round the back of the church on the north side).

Bedmond Church is not left open but you can arrange to meet someone there if you would like access - requests via the contact us page. There is a Coffee Morning in the Church on the first Wednesday of each month between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon.

A downloadable, printable version of our weekly leaflet can be found by clicking on the appropriate Sunday: St Lawrence (13th August).

Copies of recent sermons can be found on this page.

A copy of the paper following the recent Parish Conversations can be found here; and the first draft of the Parish MAP (Mission Action Plan) here.
