You are most welcome to join us for any of our services. The Church is also always open for private prayer during the day.

St Laurence's is a very old (originally Saxon) Church and is set in an extensive and peaceful Churchyard which adjoins fields and woods.  Inside it is quiet and simple and has a very welcoming atmosphere which contributes to the peace and beauty of this Holy place.

A modern feature is the Millennium Window over the West door, which the Parish community generously gave in 2000.  This depicts various scenes of life in the village of Lurgashall, both past and present.

Our Priest-in-Charge is the Reverend Peter Hayes, who is also Priest-in-Charge of the adjoining Parishes of Northchapel and Ebernoe.  We have very friendly relations with those Churches and share services with them from time to time and always on the fifth Sunday in the month.
