Widford Church has strong connections with its local community:
Hunsdon Church shares its Rector with the churches in Widford and Wareside. Together the parishes are called a United Benefice. This website shows what is happening across the benefice.

St Albans Diocese
Government is facilitated by local authorities (councils) acting in smaller geographical areas like counties. In the Church of England, the equivalent geographical region to a county is called a Diocese, centred on a Cathedral City where the Bishop has his administration. We are in St Albans Diocese.
The Deanery of Hertford and Ware
A deanery is the church governance equivalent of a civic district (like East Herts) which has its own council to represent the people. Widford is in the Hertford and Ware Deanery.
