Regular Sunday and weekday services

At St Margaret's we follow a monthly cycle of services, and as St Margaret's is the only church serving Warnham we aim to provide something for everyone, from the traditional to the modern.

A digest of what each service entails:

Holy Communion at 8am

A quiet space early in the morning. A traditional, said service using the Book of Common Prayer. 

Length: 35 minutes.


Parish Communion at 10am

The heart of our parish life, with music led by the robed choir and organ; preaching is strong and lively; and the Eucharist is celebrated using Common Worship.

In term-time, Sunday Club for children aged 3 – 12 takes place during this service, in the Parish Room. Tea, coffee and squash are served for everyone after the service.

Healing ministry by anointing and private prayer is generally offered during communion on the last Sunday of the month.  

Length: 1 hour, 10 minutes.

 



Holy Communion on Thursdays 10.30am

This said service has proved particularly useful to older people who value a later start or a shorter service. It is followed by tea and coffee and is a pleasantly sociable midweek pause for worship.

Length: 35 minutes.
