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 2-4pm every Sunday - 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

from Sunday 12 July 1030


We are delighted to announce that KCM church will re-open for worship from Sunday 12 July at 1030 and on Sunday afternoons for private prayer from 2-4 pm.

There will be a one-way system and we ask that you enter by the North Porch in the car park and exit by the South Porch onto the vicarage driveway. Social distancing will apply and hygiene measures will be in place.

Do pop in and say hello, 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.


Welcome to YOUR Virtual Church

While the church buildings may be closed, the church is definitely not. We continue to meet and worship on-line and continue to support the community as best we can.

We appreciate that this is not the same as meeting together in the church and we are all looking forward to the time when we can do this again.  However, in the meantime, do join us for the various on-line services that are broadcast every week.



Join us for our weekly webcast by simply clicking on the video link below. Press F5 if you do not see this week's webcast.

Catch up with the church news before listening to a bible reading, a short talk or reflection and prayers.

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.
