Welcome to the Parish

Welcome to the Church of King Charles the Martyr!

We are a thriving Anglican church in the heart of Tunbridge Wells town centre, only a stone’s throw away from the town’s famous Pantiles shopping parade. We welcome people from all walks of life to join in our church life, with activities for families, children and young people.

In our church you will find a place to be still and contemplate, a chance to grow in faith through prayer and liturgy, services of Christian worship enhanced by beautiful music, and a friendly welcome into our growing church family. Our church is open to all.

Whether you are here because you want to find out about the Church and its activities, or you want to know more about its fascinating history and architecture, or you have arrived here by accident, I hope that you will find something to interest you.
