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 10.00 am to 5.15 pm Monday to Saturday and between services on Sundays, with refreshments available on Tuesdays between 10.15 am and 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 and 12.00 noon.

The long awaited Quiz for 2016 has been released!  Copies are on sale from the Church Office and various church people as well as during coffee on Sunday mornings - a bargain at £1 per copy.  This year's theme is 'A Colourful Collection' ...
