to the web site of the Church of England
Parish of Knebworth
and to the congregations of
St Mary's and St Martin's.
Our vision is “To be a church in the heart of the community,
with a heart for Jesus, the community and each other”.
to do this by being “A WELL church”.
This involves the areas of Administration; Worship; Evangelism; Learning; and Loving. These areas have
come from the characteristics of the early church
listed in Acts Chapter 2, verses 42-47
The Church of St Mary and St Thomas of Canterbury,
normally known as 'St Mary's' is in the grounds
of Knebworth Park. Its Sunday services, normally
8 am Holy Communion or 6 p.m. Evensong, use the
Book of Common Prayer.
The Church of St Martin's uses contemporary English
for its services every Thursday at 10 am and on
Sundays at 10 am and sometimes at 8 am. The 10
service includes Junior Church except for occasional “All Age” services. The other services at St
are Holy Communion, Morning Prayer or or "Cafe" style services. We also hold a Messy Church on the 1st Sunday of
each month at 4pm - this includes craft, a short act of worship and food, for
children and their parents/carers.
Preaching is important at all
of the services.
We seek to welcome all ages into our church family
and do all that we can to make everyone feel
at home. You are welcome to visit us with a view

Access to St. Martin's and St. Mary's ChurchesUnfortunately, due to a recent spate of malicious damage, break-ins, and theft, we have
had to take the difficult decision to keep St. Mary's church locked except for when there are services
or other events in the church, and St. Martin's open 8.30am to 3pm
Monday to Friday (except for school holidays - see below) and for services
or other events only. If you would like access outside of these times,
