Welcome to our Parish

The coming week...

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

St Lawrence Church is open seven days a week, from 10.00 am to 5.15 pm Monday to Saturday and between services on Sundays, with refreshments available on Tuesdays between 10.15 am until 12.15 pm. 

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 on the first Wednesday of the month between 10.00 am until 12.00 noon.
