For a full description of the Congregational Church, its history and its activities today visit the Congregational Church website.

A congregation was established in the 1820s by the Congregational Church in Hitchin and a chapel was built in Church Street 1840 on a plot of land which used to be an orchard purchased on the understanding that 'a right to foot passage way through part of the said plot' should be preserved. It is still there!

In the same year a Wesleyan Methodist church was built, also in Church Street. The Wesleyans had moved away by 1870 and, as the chapel became too small to accommodate all their worshipers and a new chapel was built in the High Road In 1872. The money was raised partly by the sale of the old chapel which then became the Liberal Hall. In 2007 the Liberal Hall was converted in to a private house.
