Open Church

The Church is Open

St Margaret’s Church is open 11am – 12.30pm on Wednesdays and we warmly welcome any who would like to drop in for a chat, to seek help, to light a candle or to pray. We would also warmly welcome you to join us on Sundays.

We are also open again for public worship on Sundays 10.00am, a simple service of The Word followed by a short celebration of Holy Communion for those who would like to stay. Seating is limited due to Covid restrictions but the service is being live streamed, so you are very welcome to join us on Facebook or here on the website.

A simple said service of Holy Communion will also be available for those who would like to join us from Wednesday 11th November at 10.30am in St Margaret’s Church.

The church is open each day where you can sit quietly, reflect, pray and light a candle. There are pastoral workers and clergy available if you would like to talk to someone or be prayed with.

St. Margaret’s is a vibrant worshipping community with opportunities to discuss and be prayed with by our prayer team and pastoral workers after each service.

Midday Prayers

Monday – Friday at 12noon

Each day during the week at St. Margaret’s we hold Midday Prayers in the chapel. A simple format is used where there is time and space to reflect upon bible readings and then enter into a time of prayer. Everyone is invited to pray, either out loud or within the quietness of our hearts. We believe in the power of prayer. Please join us.

If this is something that you would value then please contact the parish office on 01895 258766 or via email office@uxbridgeparish.org

Prayer is just speaking to God

And yet there is no ‘just’ about it: we pray not on our own, but in the name of Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit. We also pray alongside Christians throughout the ages and around the world. Such prayer acknowledges the just and gentle rule of God over every situation, and is used by God to bring his love to the world. There is no ‘hidden secret’ when it comes to prayer. Anyone can pray, at any time and in any place. Why not begin now? You could use the words of the Lord’s Prayer as a starting point, from which you can launch into telling God your own hopes, anxieties, doubts and faith. God promises to listen.

Small Groups

There are a variety of small groups that meet on a regular basis. Some of these groups are now meeting on zoom but in pre-covid times they would meet in the church whilst others meet in people’s homes.
