We are a village-based welcoming Anglican Church which traces its history back to the 12th century, but which seeks to be active, authentic and accessible in the 21st.  Our Mission Statement is 'To worship God, help one another grow in Christ and share his love throughout our community.'  Our lives and our commitment to serving the community in which we live are therefore informed by our worship, which varies from said Book of Common Prayer services to informal services of prayer, praise and healing. 

In April 2012 we were privileged to be able to start using the new Parish and Community Room next to the church, which provides first-class facilities for outreach and fellowship.   It is also available to hire - see our website for details.

This site and our own website will give you 'flavour' of what St. Margaret's is about, in all its variety; but there's no substitute for the personal encounter.  As Christ said to some people who wanted to know more about him, "Come and see."

Come and join us on the journey...
