Welcome to King Charles the Martyr Church, Potters Bar

Welcome to the website of King Charles the Martyr (KCM) Church, Potters Bar. We are an Anglican Church offering a wide range of styles of worship from traditional  to informal. We are a caring community consisting of people of all ages who believe that God makes a difference in our everyday lives. Our mission is to Know Christ More through worship, prayer and study and to Make Christ Known by sharing our faith with those around us.

Further to guidance by the government and the Church of England, we are now able to worship in the church at King Charles the Martyr Church and open for private prayer - see update below for further information.

Whilst worship and access to the church buildings may be limited, the church is certainly not - we are just finding different ways to worship together and to support church members and the local community.  See below for details about our on-line services.

Worship in Church

We are delighted that KCM church is opening its doors for worship on Sunday mornings for a celebration of the Eucharist at 1030 during the summer and we will resume 9.30 and 11am service on Sunday 13 September with our choir and worship team

We would also love to welcome you on Tuesday mornings at 10am for a quieter said service of Holy Communion in the church.

When attending worship please enter by the North Porch in the car park and exit by the South Porch onto the vicarage driveway.

The church will be open for private prayer Mon, Weds & Fri 9-12 when the church office is staffed.

When attending to pray privately please enter by the main halls door and let a member of staff know that you are in the building.

Social distancing will apply, please sign in for Test and Trace and hygiene measures will be in place. Please do bring a face covering if you have one.

Do sit quietly, light a candle or say a prayer.

We will also continue to post online content for those who are unable to rejoin us immediately.

Please check this website for further information on when we will be able to further reopen our building and halls.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Safeguarding

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.
