Crabtree is an independent Christian Church which has been in Harpenden for over 60 years. We are friendly with a family feel and extend a warm welcome to everyone.

Our purpose is to build up one another and to reach out into our community with God’s love, compassion and grace.


The Sunday service is in the large rear building, starts at 10:30 and is open to anyone whether you are curious about the Christian faith, or have been attending church for a long time. The service lasts for just over an hour, style is informal so come as you are. Children join in the service for about 20 minutes, and then the children’s groups leave for their own age-related time.

    When Abigail saw David, she quickly got off her donkey and bowed down before David with her face to the ground. She fell at his feet and said: “Pardon your servant, my lord, and let me speak to you; hear what your servant has to say. Please pay no attention, my lord, to that wicked man Nabal — 1 Samuel 25:23-25 (NIV)
