Knebworth Family of Churches

KNEBWORTH FAMILY OF CHURCHES (KFC) has been formed from the churches in Knebworth - St Thomas More (Roman Catholic), Trinity Church (United Reform) and St Mary’s & St Martin’s (Church of England) - and has promoted the formation of ecumenical house groups, usually in preparation for Advent or Lent, and interdenominational services in the churches in Knebworth.

On 15th June 2008, a service for the signing of a covenant and an act of commitment was held, and was the culmination of a number of years of negotiation between all the churches.

The Covenant pledges each church to:

  • Respect each other’s faith and practice, their doctrines, traditions and developing traditions.
  • Worship together regularly.
  • Pray for unity and for each other’s on-going life and worship.
  • Share in activities that nurture and challenge each other
  • Engage in mission and outreach together, to serve this village, and share the good news of Jesus Christ with its residents.
  • Seek to work together, whenever they are not prevented from doing so, by conscience.

Ecumenical house groups have grown in recent years following the introduction in 2004 of the Roman Catholic course ‘At Your Word Lord’, (described as a faith-sharing experience). For more information on current house groups please go to 'House Groups'.

During the Church year, interdenominational services are held for One World Week, Advent, Epiphany, Christian Aid, Pentecost, Christian unity and quarterly services are held for Taizé worship, (through prayer, silence and fellowship with people from many different cultures and Christian traditions, men and women have found in Taizé the presence of the risen Lord Jesus offering them a new way and vision for the future).

More recently (October 2009) KFC have embarked on a new venture of joint services with Churches Together in Stevenage (CTIS), thus embracing KFC's philosophy of ecumenical partnership further.

Other joint activities take place such as the Good Egg Club for 4 – 11 year olds, and ‘bring and share’ lunches.

Christian Aid is supported by KFC.
