Serving Our Community
Through the work of OasisUxbridge and other agencies at St Margaret's
In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. Therefore it is with regret that all services across the Uxbridge Parish have been suspended, as have our Oasis Coffee Shop and many of our groups serving the community. However we are looking at ways to open the church building so that people can visit to pray and reflect quietly and different ways to stay in touch with and continue to serve the community.
Foodbank at St Margaret’s is suspended. However, Hillingdon Foodbank warehouse (based 30 Oxford Rd, Denham, UB9 4DQ) is open Monday to Friday 11 AM to 1 PM for donations and for clients

A Message from Hillingdon Foodbank
Due to the ongoing effect of the covid virus situation, last week saw the number of people requiring help nearly treble. Over 150 people were helped, many of them families, with food aid, usually it is 50/70. 2500kg of donated food was distributed last week alone which has resulted in low to no stock in the warehouse.
Foodbank is now appealing for people to donate food, however small, when they shop in their supermarkets to ease the situation. People can also take their donations to the Foodbank Warehouse, 30 Oxford Road, UB9 4DQ.
