We are a friendly village church community of all ages. Our services range from the traditional Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion, Evensong and the occasional Mattins to Common Worship, Sung Eucharist and All Age Non- Eucharistic and Toddlers' services. We share a Priest in Charge with our neighbouring parishes of Great and Little Wymondley, and several times a year combine with these churches for special joint services.
Our Church building is very well loved by the village and being a pretty church on a hill in lovely surroundings we are often chosen by brides for their wedding day (see weddings page).
In 2014 we will host several weddings, always a happy occasion for the couple, the church and the village community.
There has been a church on this site for at least 900 years; the church building is dedicated to St Ippolyts, so our patronal festival day is August 13th the day dedicated to St Hippolytus (see the article about St Hippolytus). The Ecclesiastical parish of St Ippolyts includes the villages of St Ippolyts, Gosmore and Langley.
Located to the South of Hitchin, just off the A602. The village of St Ippolyts is just outside Hitchin on the B656 road to Codicote. The church is visible from this road, just under two miles from Hitchin turn left at a small crossroads and travel past the old foundry and the church is a short distance away. It is floodlit at night so easy to spot. From the A1 come off at junction 8 and take the A602 to Hitchin, there are two very narrow lanes on LHS that are signposted to St Ippolyts, watch out for the different spelling of our village.
