St Margaret's Church in Halstead is part of a United Benefice with St Katharine's Church, Knockholt. We are two Church of England (Anglican) parishes in the Sevenoaks Deanery of the Diocese of Rochester, within the Canterbury Province. St Katharine's and St Margaret's came together in 1983 as a United Benefice under one parish priest. Our pattern of services reflects the fact that we are two parishes working closely together.
- 1st Sunday: 9.30am Family Service
- 2nd Sunday: 9.00am Choral Matins
- 3rd Sunday: 10.30am Family Communion
- 4th Sunday: 8.00am Holy Communion; 6pm (4pm in Winter) Holy Communion at BMMH
Please email or phone the Rector, the Rev'd John Benson for further details of these services. Our Curate, the Rev'd Hugh Thomas helps to lead and develop our parishes in worship. Churchwardens assist our Rector and Curate in this.
We have two thriving choirs, a Youth Choir and an Adult Choir, led by professional music teacher Clare Pollard, accompanied by our talented organist, Brian Shilling, following the RSCM's Voice for Life Scheme. For more information on our choirs and music, visit our website.
We also have strong children and youth outreach within our parishes, as well as many year-round events for parishioners and people of all ages from surrounding villages. Our many groups and fellowships include a Mens' Fellowship, Mothers' Union, St Margaret's Flower Team and a Churchyard Working Party.
A full history of St Margaret's along with sermons and articles is available on our website. We look forward to welcoming you to our parish.

From time to time we run Alpha Courses which have proven to be a excellent way in which people can explore just what the Christian faith is all about. It is relaxed and non-threatening, low-key, friendly and fun. We have run courses in the daytime and in the evening and over 50 people from our two parishes have now completed Alpha. There is often a meal together, or some sort of sharing of food, and we meet in homes where we can feel comfortable and get to know each other.
|Open to the public from about 9am to 6pm every day, including Sundays when we are open for the same times around our services.|
