Corona Virus (Covid-19)

11 Mar 2020

We continue to ‘sign’ the peace and refrain from shaking hands as we leave church.  At communion you can choose whether to take only bread or to also receive the wine but do not dip wafers in the chalice.

Race Night

27 Jan 2020

We are planning a Race Night for Church funds on Friday 27th March.

Come along, it should be fun!

If you can help with this event in any way please speak to Nigel, Ken Carroll, Diane Childs or Daryl Kelly.

In particular, we are looking for eight local businesses willing to sponsor a race at £50/race.

Lent Course

11 Apr 2020

Come and join us as we explore how we live out our faith in the world.


Mondays at 11am, repeated on Wednesdays at 7:30pm

Each week, we will be considering a different issue - our response as Christians, and how to be a church that is welcoming to all.

Week 2: Ethnicity Week 3: Gender Week 4: Disability Week 5: Mental Health

Everyone is welcome - whether you are new to faith or an old hand, someone who's got lots to say, or just likes to sit back and listen. This is a great chance for us to grow together as a church and to start getting ready for our mission fortnight in May.

Dates and sign-up sheets at the back of church and in the Parish Centre.

Car Parking & access to Church

27 Mar 2020

Contractors are continuing work on a new heating system for the Parish Centre and as a result there is No Access at all for vehicles as well as pedestrians, to the rear of St. Margaret's Church.

Please give priority to people with mobility problems so they can park at the front of church (Morrison's side) in the grounds or allow a few more minutes and park in the Council Car park along Church Lane.

Parish Giving Scheme

30 Mar 2020

A new system for giving to church direct from your bank account was launched in the Diocese this January.

Some members of St Margaret’s congregation have been involved in a pilot scheme since last summer and it has worked very well.

We are now urging all who give by Standing Orders or Envelopes to transfer to this system along with any new givers to church.

Floodlighting Sponsorship

31 Dec 2020

If you would like to sponsor the Church floodlighting one evening for £5.00 please complete a pink form from the back of Church, at least one month before your chosen date with your desired wording to commemorate a personal or family celebration or anniversary. This will appear in a framed display at the back of Church each month. Pass the form, together with your contribution to a Church Warden.
