Welcome to the United Benefice of St Mary's, Henlow, and St Andrew's, Langford, a benefice of two Anglican Churches situated in East Bedfordshire in the Diocese of St Albans.
Henlow and Langford are two ancient villages located just to the south of Biggleswade in Bedfordshire, alongside the quietly flowing River Ivel. Both villages have a history as farming and, more recently, market gardening communities, although today they are largely commuter villages for London, Stevenage, Bedford and other towns in the surrounding area.
The two parishes, which are Crown appointments, were brought together by Royal Assent in 1997 and each has its own dedicated section on this site — St Mary's, Henlow | St Andrew's, Langford — alongside shared Contact, Diary and Weekly Notices pages. Each church also has its own facebook page: if you're on facebook, please stop by, hit the 'Like' button and leave us a message — St Mary's | St Andrew's. You can also leave comments here via your facebook account.
The churchyards in both parishes are always open; the churches themselves are open for Sunday services and at various other times: please see the parish pages for details, and see below for links to maps showing where we are. We look forward to meeting you.
Our Vicar is the Revd Shaun Speller, who was licensed to the Benefice on 26 January 2017. Shaun is married to Ruth and has three children. His pride and joy is his bike, so look out for him cycling around the benefice! His other great passion is Rugby and he is a Northampton Saints fan.
Please see our Contact Us page if you need to get in touch with Shaun.
