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.

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.


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.
