Welcome 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”.

We aim 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

 25th - Pancakes! - 12pm in St. Martin's Parish Centre

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 at 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 am Sunday service includes Junior Church except for occasional “All Age” services. The other services at St Martin's are Holy Communion, Morning Prayer or "Cafe" style services.

We also hold a Messy Church on the 1st Friday of each month at 3.30pm -  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 to joining our church family.

Access to St. Martin's and St. Mary's Churches

Unfortunately, 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 as per the notice below and for services or other events only. If you would like access outside of these times, please contact in advance to see if access can be arranged:
  • St. Martin's -Penny Paton on 01438 313241
  • St. Mary's - Jim Pye on 01438 817396
