Kids Worship

Join us in St Helen’s at 3.30pm for fun, informal worship with songs, stories and craft. Especially suitable for primary age children and smaller siblings, but all are welcome.

Refreshments in the Chancel before the service.


Following on from last Sunday’s engaging discussion on the Living in Love & Faith (LLF) initiative, if you would like to explore this further please go to Living in Love and Faith ( The hope is for people in Church of England churches across the country to use the LLF resources to study and pray together. The resources are designed to encourage and enable engagement and learning in a variety of settings. If there is sufficient interest to attend the 5-week course on this, then please get in touch and we will consider running this after Easter.

The funeral service for the late John Arthur Burgess will be held on
Wednesday 9th March 2022 at St Helens Church, Wheathampstead at 2pm
