Welcome to St Margaret’s

jesus-is-alive
 
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!

 

Our Church Services are now on-line!

Although St. Margaret’s Church is closed for public worship until further notice our services continue every Sunday morning at 10.30 a.m. on-line.

Details of our services and how to participate in them are sent out every week by e-mail. If you would like to receive this information please contact one of us.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have advised parishes that due to the Coronavirus epidemic public worship is suspended until further notice.

 This includes all Sunday and mid-week services.

The Vicarage phone (01782 750205) will divert to Vicar Peter’s mobile if there is an emergency that we can help with.

We plan to keep in touch as best we can and assure you of our prayers during this anxious time. 

Our prayers and best wishes are with you,

Peter, Jennifer and Kevin
