The Benefice of Hartford Hundred (West) was established on November 1st, 1976 as a “united benefice” combining the four parishes of Bayford & Brickendon, Essendon & Woodhill, Little Berkhamsted and Ponsbourne (Newgate Street), with its centrally located Rectory in the village of Little Berkhamsted. In the years since then, the group has developed a coherence and a distinct identity whilst retaining the individuality of the separate churches.

We are part of the St. Albans Diocese within the Church of England and are united with the desire to welcome every person, young and older, into our wonderful community minded church families. We have 5 beautiful church buildings with various styles of worship, partnerships with three excellent Church of England Schools and a clear Bible based ministry.

We are committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our community. Find out more here

The loss of visitors and worshipping congregations in the last year has had a significant effect on the income each of our churches receives from the generosity of those who visit, admire, use, support and worship in our buildings.

It would be wonderful if you would consider making a difference by donating to us at this time to help with our day to day running costs and ministry. Thank you
