We had a good team from choir, congregation and bellringers for the All Saints’ “Green Gym” last Saturday 18th November, and they made a significant improvement to the entrance off Church Lane and along the boundary against the Parish Garden as well as benefitting from the cardio-vascular workout! Well done to those who joined in and thank you for your commitment – all welcome to the next session – date to be advised!
All Saints Church is now open daily! We are usually open daily from around 9.30am until 5pm – all are welcome to come in for a moment of quiet prayer or contemplation, to light a candle, or to admire the beautiful and historic building.
We do sometimes have to close the church so if you are making a special journey we recommend that you first check with the parish office.
A new Home Study Group is meeting on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday’s of the month at 10.45am.If you are interested? If so or you would like further information, please contact Ian Brading, 01442 261879.
On 1 October 2009 the new Benefice of Langelei was created establishing the new Langelei Team Ministry. The benefice comprises four separate parishes - Holy Trinity Leverstock Green, St Benedict's Bennetts End, St Mary's Apsley End, and All Saints' Kings Langley. Each parish has its own Parochial Church Council responsible for managing local affairs and the Team Council is responsible for oversight of the whole benefice, determining policies on mission, ministry and pastoral care.
The process leading towards the creation of the new benefice has taken several years but now offers the churches the huge opportunity of working collaboratively, harnessing the considerable resources at the disposal of all the churches.
The name of the new benefice 'Langelei' originates from domesday times and it means 'long valley' or 'long meadow' this being the name of the geographical area now roughly covered by the new benefice.
