St Lawrence Church stands in a beautiful 4.5 acre churchyard in the rural Hertfordshire village of Bovingdon, offering peace, welcome, Christian teaching and worship to all. Our church dates back to at least the 13th century and we are glad to stand at the end of a long tradition of Christian worship and witness at the heart of our community. We strive to bring the Christian faith to all ages. We aim to offer worship and teaching week by week which help people today make sense of life and discover the riches of the Christian gospel.

We hope that you will join us for worship and assure you of a warm welcome when you do.
