About Us

St Lawrence is a friendly church where all are made welcome in a setting where worship and Christian teaching are priorities and we work to make each person feel safe and valued in the presence of God.

In our unique position as the church in Hillhouse School we share and aim to develop with the staff and pupils core 'Gospel Values'.

We welcome people of all ages and seek to reach out especially to those who live or work in the Ninefields Community.

We are committed to ensuring that St Lawrence Church is a safe place for all. 

The District Church Council of St Lawrence has adopted the House of Bishops' Promoting a Safer Church Safeguarding Policy Statement: 


Our Safeguarding Representative is Julie Stannard. She can be contacted at church, or by phoning the Benefice Office 01992767897, or by email [email protected]
