About Us

The Church of the Ascension is part of the Parish of Abbots Langley, which includes St Lawrence in Abbots Langley.  It is known locally as the ‘Tin Church’ because of its corrugated-iron shell.  Completed in 1880, it has a simple wooden interior with chairs seating around 60 people.  There is a small grassed area at the rear used for fetes, parking and other activities.  This grassed area has recently been studied and recorded for plant life.  The Church is very much part of the Bedmond Village Community and a Church Coffee Morning is held on the first Wednesday of each month (except January) between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon, as well as a craft and chat group every Friday from 10.00am.  A Friends of the Tin Church has recently been formed and will be arranging events to raise funds in support of the church.
