St Margaret’s is a friendly church, built around a shared loyalty to Jesus Christ and a desire to be made new people in him. Worship is central to everything we do, and we enjoy it. As the only
church in the village, we try to provide something for everyone, and are proud to be able to offer a wide range of services, from the quiet dignity of early morning Communion to Messy Church,
from the exuberant celebration of Family Communion to traditional Evensong (we are one of the few villages locally still able to offer this). Whatever the style of worship, we expect to encounter
the living Jesus through the words of scripture and in his sacramental presence. We have a strong musical tradition, with both a robed choir and a worship band: you might hear anything, from
Tallis to Tim Hughes, with most stops in between.
We have an active, successful bellringing band and we are very proud of our work with children and young people. The Church's year is fully celebrated with many moving and well-attended special services at festivals. Our congregation expect intelligent, relevant preaching and we are beginning to discover the value of home fellowship groups and other less formal ways of being in church together.
We want to be a church which serves the community, and we encourage our members to volunteer for a wide range of civic, local and charitable roles. In serving others, we see the face of Jesus.
If you know of anyone who regularly worships at St. Margaret's but does not have access to a computer, please do give them a call and share our weekly bulletins. Alternatively, please contact our Parish Administrator who will contact them. Many thanks for your help and support!
The church has reopened and is open for private prayer on weekdays and Saturdays, 10-5.
Our services are also now open to in-person attendance with no booking necessary. Strict systems are in place to keep everyone safe, and we ask you to keep a distance in church and to wear a mask.
We are still live-streaming services from the church at 10am each Sunday. You can get the link to these services each Saturday evening from the services page, from our Facebook page or from the weekly email Newsletter.
If you would like to be on the email circulation list for our weekly worship links, news updates and so on contact Ros Parker, the PCC Secretary, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be assured of our love and prayers for you and yours, and let us all continue to be diligent in doing those things that are within our control to keep each other safe.
