The Parish of Abbots Langley

About Us

We have two church buildings - St Lawrence Church in Abbots Langley and the Church of the Ascension ('The Tin Church') in Bedmond, and we are part of the Deanery of Watford, within the Diocese of St Albans.  We are also members of Churches Together in Abbots Langley, along with the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church, the Roman Catholic Church (St Saviour's) and another Anglican Church (St Paul's, Langleybury).  We work well together, including worshipping together, especially at Festival times, and we organise various social events together.

There has been a church in Abbots Langley for over 850 years and in Bedmond for 130 years.  We try to combine a sense of tradition with witnessing to the dynamic presence of God in his world today, and serving the communities of which we are a part.  We are an inclusive church and are pleased to offer hospitality to everyone.

The two separate communities of Abbots Langley and Bedmond both have a good feel about them.  The total population of the parish is about 14,000: at one end it merges into Watford and at the other into open farmland.  You don't have to be in the area long to realise that it is the goodwill and community spirit which makes both villages good places in which to live, work and worship.

We are a Fairtrade parish and try to buy and to use fairly-traded goods whenever we can, and to encourage parishioners to do the same.

Stay and browse this website and get the feel of the life of our churches, what we do and why we do it - and we hope that one day we shall find you here with us to share our worship and our life.
