A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Update from Revd Atalie

Dear friends, I am sorry to say that KCM church and halls will be closed to the community and our congregation except for our funeral services in the coming weeks.

I thank you all for your prayer, love and support and during these challenging times, could I implore you now, more than ever, to be praying for our community in Potters Bar, our country and our world.

Whilst we cannot physically meet we continue to be #KCMfamily, and as such we will continue to serve our community within the limitations of safety, government protocol and common sense.

We will continue to worship online, to pray together and ask for your prayer requests. Please do be in contact if we can assist in any way. We have set up a whatsapp group for members of our community and will keep updating our website, facebook page and twitter feed.

We have set up an online children’s hub, please be in touch with Nikki our Children and Families worker to access this.

Keep in touch, the faith, keep strong and keep safe - Remember God is with us in the darkness and in the light.

With love, Revd Atalie x

Archbishops and Bishops: stay at home but continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable

The Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have urged everyone to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

But they called on the Church to “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”.

It follows the announcement by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson of sweeping restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of the virus.

It means all Church of England churches will close with immediate effect in line with the Government’s instructions. There will also be no Church weddings or baptisms.

Funerals at the graveside or in crematoriums can still take place, but only in line with the Prime minister’s Statement.

In a joint statement the bishops said: “In the light of the Government’s measures, announced by the Prime Minister this evening, we urge everyone to follow the instructions given.

“We will give a fuller statement of advice as soon as possible. Let us continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable, and build our communities, even while separated.”

Our mission

We are a passionate Church family, committed to proactively meeting the needs of our wider community. We will welcome and engage with people through open and inclusive worship and prayer, enabling everyone to Know Christ More through our enthusiasm, faith and outreach.



The Church of King Charles the Martyr, Potters Bar is committed to and will champion the protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults both in society as a whole and in our own community. We fully accept, endorse and will implement the principles enshrined in The Children Act 1989 that the welfare of the child is paramount. We will foster and encourage best practice within our community by setting standards for working with children, young people and vulnerable adults and by supporting parents in the care of their children. We will work with statutory bodies, voluntary agencies and other faith communities to promote the safety and well being of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We are committed to acting promptly whenever a concern is raised about a child or young person or vulnerable adult or about the behaviour of an adult, and will work with the appropriate statutory body when an investigation into child abuse or other abuse is necessary.
