"O Lord, Give us the strength to love All beings of the world That Thy Father has created and, more so, our enemies. Free our soul and heart from sin, from partiality, from egoism and from cowardice so that we can be worthy of Thy sacrifice. Let Thy Spirit fall upon us all, The Knights of the Holy Sepulchre, so that it may render us as convinced and sincere ambassadors of Peace and Love among our brothers and, especially, among all those who do not believe in Thee. Give us Faith to face all the problems of everyday life and to deserve the day to approach Thy presence humbly but without fear."

Prayer of the Knights


The Knights Templar GCKT International is a humanitarian organisation of like-minded individuals who demonstrate nine core principles: Chivalry, Courage, Honour, Integrity, Humility, Loyalty, Courtesy, Charity & Wisdom. Members take their inspiration from the highest ideals of the medieval Order of Knights Templar, originally founded by Hugues de Payens and eight fellow noblemen in Jerusalem circa 1118. These core principles have strong correlations to the Latin Rule of Templars, adopted by Hugues de Payens and others under the guidance of St Bernard of Clairvaux and Council of Troyes on 13th January 1129. It is expected that members commit themselves to these core principles which the Order recognises as being based on traditional chivalric principles.

We are affiliated to the Ordre Souverain et Militaire du Temple de Jérusalem (OSMTJ) - commonly known in English as the Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem - and our Order is the only formally recognised OSMTJ Templar Order for England & Wales. To learn more about the Ordre Souverain et Militaire du Temple de Jérusalem, please visit www.osmtj.net

We are a very proactive Order and expect our members to demonstrate the very ideals and behaviours of Templarism in their day-to-day lives. From our very beginning, we introduced the concept of the 'Pay It Forward' ARK card, (ARK stands for Acts of Random Kindness), whereby our members perform good deeds for others and leave a trackable ARK card which can show how many times the card has been 'paid forward'. Our ARK Project allows us to go into schools and set up reward programmes whereby children are taught & rewarded that "It's cool to be kind". We also introduced the idea of an International Response Team (IRT) made up of suitably qualified and vetted volunteers to support others around the world in a crisis. We're now four years in and are proud to see this concept move from idea to reality. And this year we have introduced new training programmes for our Templar members to qualify in advanced spiritual methodology and the application of defeating demonic influence within the world - known simply as our Spiritual Warrior Programme.
