Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • Present population predominantly white & middle-class, with growing numbers from differing ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
  • An area of retail and commercial property & a large hotel lies between the St Albans Road and Watford Junction station.
  • Housing is largely private, with a recent surge in new developments as in-filling gathers pace. 12 elderly care homes in parish.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Ageing and small congregation; lack of young people
  • Lovely building, but 'tucked away'.
  • Warm and friendly atmosphere.
