Who we are

We are two churches serving the parishes of Flamstead and Markyate in Hertfordshire. Our churches are communities of Christian faith, shaped by the values of the Gospel. We strive to be opening and inclusive of all people and warmly invite you to join with us in our pilgrim journey of faith. We are a mixed group of all ages and stages of belief.

We are communities shaped by the theology of The Church of England and informed by reason, scripture and tradition. We believe that God calls each one of us to live a particular life in His light and for His purpose of love and faith.

Our Vicar is The Revd Thomas Sander. Tom is a keen cyclist, he enjoys spending time around the parish meeting new people. He lives in Flamstead Vicarage with Ambrose, his miniature Schnauzer. Tom is assisted by our Curate, The Revd Stephen Tudway, who lives with his wife and two children in Flamstead.
