Pre-recorded services are posted on the Parish Blog, Facebook and Twitter, complete with words on-screen. Daily prayers and reflections are posted on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Peregrini Morning Prayer and Compline are livestreamed on Rev Deborah’s blog daily at 8.30am and 8.15pm, and are available on the parish Facebook page from around 9.00am and 8.45pm..

In light of restrictions being lifted on 19 July, there are some changes to our services at St Margaret’s. Rev Deborah explains them in this video.

In summary, You may attend either (or both) of our services; please continue to use hand sanitiser; face coverings are a matter of personal preference; we will sing hymns and the communion responses; Communion will continue to be received in one kind (bread) from our seats; when sharing the peace, please be aware that not everyone is ready for personal contact. 

There will be no changes at St George’s for the time being.

Our COVID-19 risk assessment is being updated to reflect this.

We aim to be a welcoming, inclusive and diverse church where worship and prayer are at the centre of our lives. Our mission statement is to worship God, follow Jesus, serve our neighbour and welcome all, which can be summarised as


Worship is important because we seek to put God at the centre of our lives. Holy Communion is a high point of our shared life together as we deepen our relationship with God and grow in faith.

Fellowship is the way in which we show God’s love to each other by building up relationships, supporting and encouraging one another as we share our lives together.

Service is the way in which we put the gospel into action and share God’s love for our neighbourhood and the world around us.

We welcome all new members wherever they are on their faith journey and invite you to come and be part of our church community.
