Langley Methodist Church is a friendly welcoming church set in the heart
of the village. Almost all our members live or work in the village and
so the church is an integral part of village life. Our members, together
with members from the other village churches live out their Christian

practical help to those in need.
In our Sunday worship we mix traditional and contemporary
resources in order to meet the spiritual needs of our congregation.
Once a month we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion, remembering
that it is the Lord's table not ours, and so all who wish to take the
sacrament may do so. Ladies from the village come together on a Wednesday
afternoon for devotions, fellowship and to hear Christian speakers. Our
monthly united bible study with Kings Langley Methodist Church is small,
but provides sound bible teaching and an opportunity for theological reflection.
Our minister takes an active part in the spiritual life of the village beyond the boundaries of the church building; through services in residential and nursing homes, links with schools, and through joint working with the other clergy in the village. This includes supporting the important work of the Churches Together in Abbots Langley Bereavement Visitors.

and events during the Christian year, including open-air services on
