In the light of government advice around the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, St Margaret’s Prestwich will be open for public worship twice weekly from Sunday 12 July. St George’s Simister is also open for a service of Holy Communion every Sunday at 11.15am.

Please note that from 8 August 2020 wearing face masks in places of worship is compulsory by law.

Church will now be open for worship on Sundays (9.45am) and Wednesdays (10am).  Please refer to this short video for information regarding social distancing, seating, receiving communion and other details.

Our COVID-19 risk assessment is here Parish Risk Assessment july 2020

As seating is so limited, priority is being given to those who cannot access our services online; 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.

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


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.
