Planning a visit

We look forward to welcoming you to St Leonard's Church, Sandridge.

We aim to maintain a friendly and inclusive atmosphere and to be a place and a community where people of all ages can find a welcome and a spiritual home.

Visitors are always welcome to services, to weekday activities for children and adults, to our regular programme of concerts and events such as the annual Flower Festival - held on the first weekend in October - or to drop in during the week.

The church is usually open Monday to Saturday from around 9am to 3pm, and on Sundays from around 11am (when the morning service finishes) until the evening service at 6pm. (During August up to around 5pm). Please visit to pray, reflect, have some quiet space or to look around the historic church. Do check our What's On section for any events during which admission would be restricted.

There is full access for wheelchairs and pushchairs, plus toilet and changing facilities.

There is limited parking immediately outside the church, but there is a car park in the centre of the village, and there is some parking in roads near St Leonard's - please park with consideration for our neighbours.

Our full address is: St Leonard's Church, Church End, Sandridge, Herts, AL4 9DL

At the main service on Sunday mornings there is a crèche with age-appropriate activities for the under-fives in the Parish Room at the rear of the church, while Young Church  usually meets in our parish room at the rear of church (enter through the main church entrance).

The children join the rest of the congregation in church for Communion and refreshments after the service, and on the first Sunday in the month and major festivals everyone meets at 10.00am in church for All-age Worship.

The Sunday morning service normally lasts about an hour and is followed by refreshments for all. A collection for St Leonard's is usually taken during the morning service.

At our communion services, we invite everyone to come to the communion rail, either to receive the bread and the wine, or to receive a blessing. If you would like to have a gluten-free wafer, please let one of the clergy or a steward know when you arrive in church, and we will make sure this is available.

We look forward to welcoming you!
