We are a lively Benefice of four parish churches serving the communities of Kings Langley, Apsley, Bennetts End and Leverstock Green.
People often ask where the name Langelei comes from! It is a medieval word meaning 'long meadow' which was chosen when the Benefice formed in 2009 to describe our location, roughly in a triangle between Hemel Hempstead, Watford and St Albans.
Each of the four churches has its own character, and we enjoy working together collaboratively where appropriate. What we share is the warm welcome that we offer to anyone who would like to join us in worship or at our other events and activities.
These pages give a flavour of church life but visiting in person is the best way to find out more about us. Why not come to a Sunday service, or give us a call? Whether you have been to church before or are coming for the first time, we look forward to meeting you!
