About our Church

Christ the King is a friendly, welcoming Church at the heart of Haldens in Welwyn Garden City.

We are a Church at the heart of the Community and offer a place of welcome and hospitality for All.  

We serve the local community in a variety of ways, including helping with local schools and running coffee mornings and meals for the elderly in our community.

Annabels Montessori uses our Hall (9am-3pm) during term time and are always happy to talk with the parents of children who might like to have fun learning there.  Their contact details are below.   

We also welcome 2 packs of Rainbows, a pack of Brownies, a Pilates Group, a Yoga Group and a Karate Group each week to our Community Hall.  The Hall is also hired reguarly for private parties and events.   Please see details below if you are interested in doing this.
