CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (23 March 2020):
In the light of government advice around non essential contact, all public worship is suspended until further notice.
Churches will not be open. Prayers can be said by ministers on behalf of everyone and churches should consider ways of sharing this with the wider community.
In the light of the above, public services at St. Margaret’s and St. George’s Churches will be suspend. 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.
We are investigating ways of live streaming daily prayers via our social media streams.
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.
