The Parish of Abbots Langley

... Abbots Langley!

Six weeks ago, we set ourselves the target of raising £25,000 to repair the stonework of St. Lawrence Church by St. Lawrence Day - 11th August 2019. We asked for your help.

Part of the work of the Reaching New People Project is to tell the stories of new worshipping communities within the Diocese of St Albans ...

In March 2018 we were allocated a £2500 grant by the ABBOTS LANGLEY PARISH COUNCIL towards cost of churchyard maintenance and maintaining the environment.  This goes towards the upkeep of the mowers and equipment and to pay one person a number of hours throughout the year to try to keep on top of some of the growing season.  Most of the work in the churchyard is done by a small group of volunteers who are always happy to welcome others to join them.  They usually meet on the first Saturday of each month and, depending on the time of year, they mow, strim, weed, sweep leaves, clear litter, have bonfires, etc, all the usual things you would expect to do in your garden throughout the year - albeit probably on a larger scale!  If you would like to join this team please just turn up between 9.30 am and 12.30 pm (coffee break at 11.00) - the remaining dates for 2018 are:  6th October, 3rd November and 1st December  - or make contact to find out more.
