The Parish of Abbots Langley

How You Can Help

How you can help

The church of St Lawrence and the church of the Ascension are living and working places which many visit each year - whether to worship at a regular service, to attend a special event, or to enjoy a private moment of peace. Our work extends beyond these walls out into the community in a number of ways, such as visiting schools, hospitals and care homes.

All of this costs the parish around £3000 per week. We receive no financial assistance from the Government and have to rely on the generosity of our supporters and our own fundraising endeavours to continue our important work.

Please read below to see how you can support us. If you are a UK taxpayer, please remember to fill in the Gift Aid section, if applicable, so that we can reclaim the tax you have paid.

Simply text STLA12 followed by the amount you want to give (e.g. STLA12 £10) to 70070 and press send. You can give an amount of £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10.

Time and talents

The churches rely on the many hours of time given by volunteers. If you would like to give to the community in this way, please speak to somebody in the Church Office on 01923 261795, or e-mail adminstlawrence@abbotslangley.org.uk. For a list of the roles you could take on, please click here.
