About Us


The church was founded by London Colney villagers over seventy years ago as an independent free evangelical church. It was established in its present location in the 1950s, with our present building being opened in 1958. A church hall was added later.


The principal service is at 11.00 am on Sundays and has a time of worship, Bible teaching and communion. We hold prayer meetings in the Church every other Tuesday morning with House Groups held on the alternating weeks. The Church has facilities for Sunday school and young people’s classrooms, and the Church Hall is used for events such as church lunches, the toddlers club and youth activities. There is level access into the church, and a disabled toilet with baby-change facilities.


To maintain covid safety all chairs in the Church are spaced 2m apart, unless sitting in a family pod. Wearing face masks is optional but can be removed while at your seat. There is hand gel in the Church foyer, to be used on entering and leaving the Church.

House Groups

We have now restarted our House Group meetings after halting them due to Covid. The House Groups are held every other Tuesday Mornings and Wednesday afternoons. 

At these house meetings, we discuss in small groups varies Bible topics and moral issues. Everyone is welcome, provided they have received a double Covid vaccination. 

Details of times and venues can be obtained by calling Keith on 01727 828458. Or email ksimpson1@hotmail.co.uk
