Welcome to All Saints Kings Langley
We are a welcoming, inclusive church for all ages in the heart of Kings Langley. We aim to worship God, care for each other and serve our community.
URGENT – CHURCH CLOSURE
Due to the rising Covid infection rates locally, All Saints will be closed for public worship on Sundays until further notice. Services will be live streamed via our Online Services page. Check back here for updates.
New for 2021 – Church in the Wild
A new, informal, monthly outdoor service especially suitable for children and families at 11.15am on the first Sunday of the month.
Due to the lockdown we have had to postpone starting this service until restrictions are eased again. Watch this space for updates about when we hope to launch it again!
Due to the lockdown we have also had to postpone the return of Tiny Tots. Activity packs will be available from 10am every Wednesday on the back pew by the main door. We hope to restart the group as soon as we can.
We’re very pleased that – when possible – public worship in our church building takes place with our usual 9.30am Parish Eucharist. Numbers are limited – don’t forget to email email@example.com by noon on Saturday to let us know you’re intending to come. Face coverings are required in church services. Click here for more detailed information; you can find our risk assessment here.
Children are very welcome to attend but will need to stay in their family groups. There will be no Junior Church ‘Saints on Sunday’ activities or shared children’s corner – bringing your own toys and books is fine!
If you’re unable to join the service in church on Sunday, click the button above to see how to join online.
All Saints is open for private (i.e. individual) prayer every day from 9.30am – 5pm. Please be mindful of others and observe social distancing. There is hand sanitizer available at the doors and signage to help you visit safely. Everyone is very welcome to make use of the space for private prayer and devotion or just for quiet reflection. We do hope you will feel free to make use of the church building in this way.
There is an ‘open table’ foodbank at the back of church. It is unattended and anyone who needs to should feel free to come and take food for themselves or neighbours in need. If you are able to donate to the food bank, then non-perishable food and toiletries will be very welcome. Any surplus donations will be given to DENS Dacorum Foodbank.
A ‘Shoebox for Christmas’ campaign for needy children of Kings Langley is taking collections – please see details in What’s On below.
Local support and Buddy system
There will be some who have spent much time alone recently and who may be unable to get out of the house to do the things they would usually do. Those who have practical needs can contact Kings Langley Good Neighbours: www.klgna.org or 07790 668672. Aside from practicalities, there is much worry, uncertainty and loneliness. If you would like any pastoral support please get in touch with me, my contact details are below. If you would appreciate someone to be in touch with you regularly I can pair you up with one of our ‘buddy system’ volunteers.
If you need help or would like to speak to me about anything please call 01923 903531 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to help others then please get in touch with me or with Kings Langley Good Neighbours. If I am unable to answer the phone (quite likely) then please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
As the situation continues to change, be assured that All Saints is still here praying for, and serving our village.
Jesus said, ‘I am with you always, even to the end of the age’. May his peace be always with you..
With my love and prayers,
About All Saints
For more than 800 years this has been and continues to be where we worship God, and we warmly invite you to join us. Although it has a long history, All Saints is alive and active and offers traditional worship, supported by a robed choir, where we can come to find refreshment, encouragement in our faith, and friendship.
Your Parish Church of All Saints is open all day every day – usually from around 9.30am until 5pm – everyone is welcome to come in for a moment of quiet prayer or contemplation, to light a candle, or to admire the beautiful and historic building. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 it is currently closed.
The Church Hall, built around 30 years ago, provides modern amenities that are regularly used by many organisations within the village and is available to hire.
What's On @ All Saints
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, many of our normal events and activities are suspended for the time being. Click on the images below for more details or check our latest email newsletter.
Developments at All Saints
We are planning to develop the Lady Chapel at the East end of the South Aisle providing for a more intimate form of ministry, worship, prayer and reflection. Proposals include covering the existing bare wooden table with an altar cloth and providing a focal point with statuary. For more information click on the links below.
Safeguarding @ All Saints
As part of the Diocese of St. Albans in the Church of England, we are committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church. This means taking action as a church to promote a safer culture where the welfare of children, young people and adults is paramount, to prevent abuse occurring, to protect those at risk and to respond well to those that have been abused. We will always take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and act accordingly.
The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser is Mr Jez Hirst who can be contacted at 01727 818107 / 07867 350886 email@example.com
