Open Church

There are many reasons why people in the local community value the fact that St Margaret’s Church is open 7 days a week. The church is open each day so that people can come in to worship, pray, socialise, meet new friends or find support pastorally, spiritually and practically.

The Oasis Coffee Shop is open from 10am until 2pm from Monday to Friday and then 10am until 3pm on Saturday. The Oasis Coffee Shop is a great place to find rest and refreshment. During Oasis Coffee Shop hours there is always an outreach pastoral worker on hand to sit, listen and/or pray with both regular visitors and those popping in on the off chance. 

The church is also open each day so that people can know there is a place, right in the heart of the town centre, where you can sit, reflect and pray quietly on your own. The main body of the church is a real oasis of peace and calm, even when all is busy in the Oasis Coffee Shop and elsewhere in the church.

Open Church means we are open each day of the week and open to all member of the local community, including residents and those working in the town. We also warmly welcome visitors who live further afield, some overseas. On Sunday there are three main services at 9am, 10.45am and 7pm. 

For some it is just a coffee and a piece of cake they are after. The staff and volunteers in the Oasis Coffee Shop will warmly welcome and serve you. Do come and see us, even if you haven’t visited us before. Everyone is welcome.

Mission Links

The Six Core Mission Links of St. Margaret's Church

Here at St. Margaret’s Church we support 6 core mission charities that operate beyond our own parish boundary. The church gives 10% of all income to these and other charities. The 6 core mission charities are CPAS (Church Pastoral Aid Society), Scripture Union International, Barnabas Fund, Church Mission Society, AMOS Trust & A Rocha UK

CPAS (Church Pastoral Aid Society)

As a mission agency CPAS exist for one simple reason: to enable churches to help every person hear and discover the good news of Jesus. For nearly 180 years, CPAS has been working towards the evangelisation of the UK and Republic of Ireland and that is still our focus today.

CPAS greatly value men and women who are called to leadership in local churches. They play a vital role in reaching people in our community with the gospel, and they want to help our church become even more effective in mission and evangelism.

Scripture Union

Today, Scripture Union is in over 130 countries around the world continuing to make God’s Good news known to children, young people and families and helping people of all ages to meet God through the Bible and prayer.  Their vision is that Christians will be the means of transforming the communities in which they live, and so they encourage people to become committed members of their churches, and servants of a world in need.

Barnabus Fund

The main ministry of Barnabas Fund is to send financial support to projects which help Christians where they suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith. The projects aim to strengthen Christian individuals, churches and their communities by providing material and spiritual support in response to needs identified by local Christian leaders.

Church Mission Society

Felipe & Sarah Yanez working in Malaga, Spain

The economic crisis in Spain has left many people in debt, unable to make ends meet, with few job opportunities and little hope. Malaga is a melting pot of nations, with many immigrants from North and Sub-Saharan Africa and South America and there is a real need to support local Christian charities as they meet the various practical, emotional and spiritual needs of such a diverse population.

Felipe supports the work of a food bank in Malaga city and is involved in Bible studies, informal discipleship and occasional English courses in our town, Alhaurín de la Torre. Sarah runs the clothes bank at the ABC, a Christian food bank in our town, and is on the management group for the ABC.

AMOS Trust

New Generation originally worked with the children orphaned during the genocide of Burundi’s civil war, responding to the lack of social protection and care by providing safe places to sleep, health programs, access to education, skills training and mentoring – working towards reintegrating the children into the communities they came from.

Praised nationally as an example of best practice when working across tribal groups, New Generation, Burundi continues to respond to the results of years of civil war amongst the surviving younger generation on the streets, providing services through engagement, intervention and reintegration.

A Rocha UK - Caring for God's Earth

From wasteland to wonderland, rubbish dump to nature reserve, drug den to garden of delight – that’s the story of Wolf Fields.

Wolf Fields is a three-acre site in Southall, West London. At one time it was used as a brick works. It’s thought that some of the bricks made there, now form part of the outer wall of Buckingham Palace.

Since then the site had fallen into disrepair and become a neglected wasteland used only for rubbish dumping, drug taking and substance abuse. A Rocha UK acquired the site in 2012. Work started in 2013.
