Connect, Belong, Share, Grow..

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

Connect, Belong, Share,Grow ..
Our mission is to build connections, encourage belonging, and share an appealing faith that grows a vibrant Christian community at every stage of life.

Following the tightening of government restrictions, each of the churches in the parish have decided not to hold services in church this week.  Services online will continue as usual.

If you are enjoying our services of prayer and worship online, and were not previously part of our congregation, we would love to hear from you by email. If we can pray for you or family and friends, or if you’d like a chat or visit, please DO email and we will respond to you.
