Church of England Diocese of St.Albans Henlow

St Mary's, Henlow

Welcome to St Mary's Church, in the parish of Henlow in Bedfordshire.

Covid-19:  Our Services during Closure 

St Mary's Church building is currently closed along with all other churches in the UK due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  However whilst our building may be closed, we are most certainly open!  Please join us for online worship and prayer, and join our email list to keep in touch with the St Mary's family.  We have a range of services online via Zoom including our Sunday worship which is at 10am each week.  For information and all the links you need to join an online service, click on the 'Services' tab.  Our vicar Shaun is available over the phone or via email if you need someone to talk to, or need to discuss arranging a funeral, baptism or wedding.  His number can be found in the Contact Us section.  Shaun also issues a weekly note entitled 'From the Vicarage' giving his reflections thoughts and prayers - this can be found under News and Notices.  Finally, we are running a group email so that we can keep in touch with each other.  Topics vary from supporting people with shopping and prescriptions to sharing photos of our 'virtual' coffee morning!  If you would like to be added, please contact us .


The parish of Henlow is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of St.Albans’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
