About Us

We are a traditional, friendly church. The Eucharist is central to our worship.

If you would like to attend the 10.30 Sunday Eucharist, you can find a short guide here.

We follow the liturgical year, celebrating major festivals and Saints’ Days, enriching and uplifting our worship through colour and sound.

Our aim is to provide a worshipping environment in which people of all ages, both individuals and families, are welcomed as part of a wider family.

Our flourishing choir and fine organ make a major contribution to the strong musical dimension of our services, following the very best choral tradition of English music.

We encourage the development of faith through exploration, learning from each other and supporting each other in our life of faith. The active Sunday school furthers this aim. We aim to encourage one another to a commitment to a life of prayer and in particular to pray regularly for one another.

St Margaret’s Church is located on the corner of St Margaret’s and Kingston Road: see the map.

St Margaret’s is closely involved with the local Church of England Primary School, SS. Philip and James School, and St Margaret’s Institute, our local community centre. In addition we support a number of outreach projects.

The parish War Memorial is situated in the corner of St Margaret’s churchyard.

St Margaret’s is a registered charity. No. 1154947: ‘The Parochial Church Council of the Ecclesiastical Parish of SS Philip and James with St. Margaret’.

St Margaret’s is part of the Church of England, and is located in the Diocese of Oxford. It forms part of a Joint Benefice uniting the parish of St Giles’ with the parish of St Margaret’s Church and the (now closed) church of St Philip and St James (Phil & Jim).

We believe in God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
