St John’s Church, Heronsgate, is part of the Parish of Mill End and Heronsgate with West Hyde and Maple Cross in the Diocese of St.Albans. There are three churches in the Parish - St Peter’s, St Thomas’s and St John’s (see separate entries).
It is the largest parish in the Deanery of Rickmansworth with a population of some 10,500.
Heronsgate is a distinct area in the vicinity of Chorleywood. It was established in the 1840s as a Chartist Settlement which eventually failed but has retained its individuality as a community.
Our small but friendly congregation is always delighted to welcome new faces to services and to our social functions.
Possibly built as the school chapel in Heronsgate, little is known of its early history.
The church is of brick with stone dressings and has some fine stained glass windows and is painted white. It has an altar at the east end and can accommodate some 80 people.It is a very intimate church and ideal for smaller scale weddings.
