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 now hosts a Community Cafe on the third Wednesday of each month between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon as well as a Church Coffee Morning on the first Wednesday of each month between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon. A Friends of the Tin Church has recently been formed and will be arranging events to raise funds in support of the church.
