St Margaret’s will be holding its Annual Parochial Church Meeting (including the election of Church Wardens) on Sunday 22 April 2018 after the Parish Eucharist. This is a great opportunity for people to hear more about the work of St Margaret’s and for people on the electoral roll to be involved in the election of Church Wardens and new PCC members and Deanery Synod Representatives. If anyone is interested in joining the PCC, then please speak to Tom Albinson or Andrew Bunch. We are also looking for two new Deanery Synod Representatives. Similarly, if you are interested, please speak to Tom or Andrew.

Would you be prepared to help with catering at St. Margaret’s social events? We are drawing together a network of volunteers – please see the notice on the board at the back of church and think about whether you would like to get involved. There are forms for volunteers or speak to Kathryn, Michèle or Samantha.

Michèle is glad to hear from anyone who would like to join St. Margaret’s flower rota. If you would like more information, please speak to Michèle who is also happy to give individual help and support to anyone who would like to try but feels that they lack experience or confidence!

The number of newly-stitched kneelers for St. Margaret’s is gradually growing. However, we would like to step up our output! We meet monthly to sew together and if you would like to join our group please email

We are looking for a Children’s Worker – could this be you or someone you know? See for more details.
