The Hertfordshire & Borders Churches League was founded in 1966 by a group of church leaders who wanted to provide a competitive football league for players from churches in the area. The league started with just 10 teams, but it has grown steadily over the years and now has over 100 teams.
The league is divided into 11 divisions, with each division having its own set of promotion and relegation rules. The top division is the Premier Division, and the bottom division is the Division 11.
The league is affiliated to the Hertfordshire FA and the Borders FA, which means that its teams are eligible to compete in cup competitions organized by those associations.
The current season of the Hertfordshire & Borders Churches League started in September 2022 and is scheduled to end in May 2023. The Premier Division is currently being led by St. Albans City, followed by Harpenden United and Letchworth Garden City.
The league's cup competitions are also currently underway. The Herts & Borders Churches League Cup is being contested by all teams in the league, and the Herts & Borders Churches League Challenge Cup is being contested by the top four teams in each division.
