One Parish, Three Churches


Welcome to the website for the Parish of Harpenden, a Church of England Parish within the Wheathampstead Deanery in the Diocese of St Albans

We aim to be a lively community connecting with God’s love in new and imaginative ways. We have a variety of worship services, traditional and less formal services. There is provision for children and young people at most of the services. We want worship to be sacred but accessible, dignified but engaging. In the end, we want to be a community that in loving God, we love and serve one another and love and serve the world, beginning with our own neighbourhood.


St Nicholas will remain open after the services on Sunday until 2.45pm for visitors commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 . In addition to the biographies, there will be an area of reflection, including prayers, poems etc, and Cornelia’s Coffee Shop will be open to serve visitors.
