The Benefice of Harlington, Tingrith and Westoning, nestled in the beautiful countryside of Bedfordshire with excellent transport links by road and rail, is part of the Diocese of St Albans and was formally established in April 2021. The parishes have benefitted from working together for a number of years prior to the formation of the Benefice and look forward to the opportunity to continue to move forward together. It is an exciting time to join this Benefice as it develops further its common mission and outreach.
