Welcome to St Margaret’s

A church for sceptics , seekers , doubters and believers – all with a sense of humour. Well almost! 🙂

We are a child friendly, lively, forward thinking community of Christians drawn from many different denominations and backgrounds. We rejoice in our diversity, yet share the desire to assist one another in discovering our full potential in Christ.

We are also an outward looking church, which engages with the world around us in a variety of ways. Our mission is to help people become devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

We belong to the Diocese of Lichfield in the Church of England, yet welcome you whatever your background.

If you would like more information about who we are, please feel free to come along to a service. We understand that some may find the thought of that too daunting; if you’re in that category, then why not join us in the Reading Room one Saturday morning and perhaps try a bacon bap?!? If your not in that category, then join us in the Reading Room anyway!

Worship in Church and On line. COVID 19 January 21

After much deliberation, we have come to the conclusion that we need to suspend all services in church for the time being.

We know this is hard for several of our number who aren’t able to join online worship, but we feel that this is the best way to keep everyone safe in the light of the threat of the new Covid-19 variant, and to reinforce the need for all of us to stay home and stay safe.

Sunday Services

We look forward to seeing you soon, on the second  Sunday in Lent. As we prepare for Easter, this week we’re thinking about letting go of life.

Our Sunday zoom service continues weekly at 11am: follow this link www.tiny.cc/BetleyMadeley.
If you don’t have zoom, you can still join by using this other link: www.tiny.cc/BetleyMadeley2, which will enable you to watch the service with just a few clicks.
