From the Vicar, Revd Jules A. Barnes:
* St. Margaret's Church is now closed until further notice*
The Archbishops have advised that there will be no public worship services until further notice due to restrictions caused by the pandemic. So there will be no services or other events at St Margaret's for the duration.
We’ll be sending out updates and keeping you all in the loop.
In the meantime, love and prayers to you and yours, and let us all be diligent in doing those things that are within our control to keep each other safe.

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.
