At St Margaret's Community Church, we hope you feel very welcome. We are a very friendly bunch of people where we hope you will feel very relaxed. Offering the community a chance to come together and worship with others. We meet every Sunday 4pm-5pm and is family-friendly. We have provision for children.
Our style of worship is lively and informal but with a real passion to encounter God and enjoy his presence.
We aim to create a community where everybody feels welcome and experience the love of Christ.
During the lockdown all our services will be live-streamed on Facebook/YouTube 4pm - 5pm each Sunday.
The church building is under refurbishment (new worship space, cafe, children's soft-play area and community shop), so we meet in the hall next door, which has the capacity of 30 people only.

We are so excited to announce that at the beginning of December, our new shop and cafe will be open again! Serving fresh coffee and homemade cakes. An opportunity to sit and relax and meet new friends.
Operation Christmas Child
You can collect your shoe box from the Foodbank on Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 0800-1100! St. Mag's is delighted to be involved this year with Operation Christmas Child. Run by the charity, Samaritan's Purse, it involves people packing a shoebox with small items that are then sent to children in other countries who would not otherwise receive a Christmas gift. If you would like to be involved, it's as easy as one, two, three:
1-Collect a leaflet and flatpack shoebox from the foodbank at St. Margaret's any Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 8am and 11am
2-Pack your shoebox as shown on the leaflet
3-Return it to the foodbank by Wednesday 11 November
We will then take all the filled shoe boxes to the distribution centre to begin their onward journey.
It really is that simple!
