History of West Watford

Places of Worship

Watford has a wealth of churches and places of worship of many denominations. The buildings themselves range from the beautiful to the simple, to the new and include those that have been redeveloped for a use other than their original purpose.

There was a Mission Church in Holywell Road, that had connections with St Michael and All Angels, the Watford Labour Church on the corner of Durban Road East and Pretoria Road (which became a Scout hut) and the Salvation Army Barracks (Citadel) in St Mary's Road.

Current places of worship in West Watford include:

St Mary's Parish Church, St Michael and All Angels, Holyrood Catholic Church, Trinity Methodist Church, The West Watford Christian Fellowship, The Sikh Temple/Gurudwaras, The Watford Mosque, St James Road Baptist Church, West Watford Free Church, Baptist, St James's Chapel of Ease and the Wellspring Community Church. 

There is a wealth of information about St Mary’s parish church and indeed also Holyrood Catholic Church in Market Street, but a brief history of both will be included here.
