CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (5 January 2021):
Despite having moved into our third national lockdown, our churches are permitted to remain open for public worship, in accordance with DCMS regulations. This means that up to 30 people may attend at St Margaret’s, however, due to the congregation demographic at St George’s, that church will close for the time being. Congregants should wear face coverings, sit in the designated seats, and use the hand sanitizer provided on arrival, before receiving communion, and when leaving.
Anyone who has been advise to shield should not attend.
There should be NO conversational social gatherings inside or outside the church building, before nor after the services.
Our regular services (Sundays and Wednesdays) will continue to be live-streamed on our Facebook page, as will Peregrini morning prayer and Compline. We will of course continue to pray and offer support and help to those in need. There is a parish WhatsApp group for prayer requests, and group prayer will happen via Zoom.
Please note that from 8 August 2020 wearing face masks in places of worship is compulsory by law.

Welcome to the Parish of St. Margaret’s, Holyrood, Prestwich. We are a Church of England parish and have two churches, St. Margaret’s Prestwich, and St. George’s, which serves the community of Simister.
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
WELCOME, WORSHIP, FELLOWSHIP, SERVICE
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.
