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.

A downloadable, printable version of our weekly leaflet can be found by clicking on the date: 21st August (Trinity 13); 28th August (Trinity 14)

The service to welcome and install the Revd Dr Peter Waddell as Vicar will take place in St Lawrence at 7.30 pm on Monday 5th September, led by the Bishop of St Albans.
