COVID-19 update

St Margaret’s Church is 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.

We will also be trialing ‘Encounter’ with live worship, encouragement from God’s Word and time to pray. Live streamed on Facebook and here on the website from Sunday 1st November at 6pm.

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.

For children and families, we have a special Parish Children’s Service from 5pm until 5.30pm on most Sundays at St Andrew’s Church, with Mini Messy Church at St Margaret’s Church on the last Sunday of the month from 5pm until 5.45pm.  

St Margaret’s Church is open again for public worship (Sundays 10.00am) and Private Prayer (Sundays 10.50-11.30am & Wednesdays 11.00am – 12.30pm). Due to the Coronavirus, considerable restrictions remain in place and in light of this our on-line worship and other digital resources remain in place.  It is important that we all try and support each other through these difficult times, so that everyone continues to feel very much apart of this loving community, especially those living alone and the vulnerable.

Digital Resources

Here are a selection of digital resources to access that you may find helpful whilst we are unable to all meet together for worship. If you come across other digital resources then please drop me an email and I will add it to the list. There are also some other digital resources on the website of our sister church, St. Andrew’s, which you may find useful. Click here to access the digital resource library at St. Andrew’s Church.

Video Library

We put together a library of videos that are a mix of worship podcasts from St. Margaret's Church and along with other Christian videos that you can listen to online.

A new St Margaret's Facebook Page

We have created an additional facebook page that is open to everyone. The members only FB page will still be in action but we wanted a page for everyone to access where we can give up to date information.

COVID-19 Guidance & Digital Resources

There is a special page on the Church of England website dedicated to provide information, updates and links to digital resources whilst we are following government advice around non-essential contact.

Join us in Daily Prayer

Follow this link to services of Daily Prayer which are available in both contemporary and traditional forms and for all times of day.

Faith in the Home

Faith isn't something to be learned in church - it's to be lived out at home. But it isn't always easy for families to know how to pray together or tell the stories of Jesus together. This page offers links and ideas to help families be Christian in their whole lives, not just the Sunday bit!
The Messy Church team use some of these resources when planning Messy Church events at St Margaret's.

Invitation to Prayer

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and a number of senior church leaders are inviting Christians across the nation to participate in the month of prayer as a second lockdown in England comes into force.

Pray as you go podcasts

A useful selection of daily readings, prayers and music.

The Purpose Driven Life
