Our churches sit in a triangle of countryside in the three villages of Great Amwell, St Margarets and Stanstead Abbots, and serve the community by working together to bring God’s Good News to everyone.

We seek to make space for people to meet God in worship and prayer, to belong to God’s Family and join our fellowship, and to get out and show God’s Love through social action and working in our community. We have close links with our two Church schools and are blessed by being able to work with the teachers, staff and children.

We want to welcome everyone and to help them to walk closer with God, discovering together what it means to ‘live life in all its fullness’, as Jesus promised we would!

Priest in Charge



Lent Groups
During Lent we will be offering two weekly Lent Groups:
* Tuesdays at 7.30pm on Zoom (starting 20th February and ending 26th March)
* Thursdays at 11.45am at The Wilshere Hall, followed by a soup and bread lunch (starting 15th February and ending 21st March)

Our Lent Groups replace the usual Life Groups, but are open to everyone. Join us as we use this time for study and quiet reflection, seeking God in both familiar and unfamiliar places this Lent. For more information about our theme, click HERE.
