St Margaret's Church is the Church of England Parish Church for the village of Underriver, which has a population of approximately 300. We hold services every Sunday (usually at 11:15am, but please check with our contact); our worship pattern varies (depending on the Sunday in the month) between Common Worship Parish Communion, Book of Common Prayer, and a short Family service - this latter, held on the Third Sunday of the month, follows our Sunday Club, and is the best attended of our services. There are also Bible Study and Prayer groups each meeting about once a fortnight in homes.

Although a separate parish, we are linked with St Lawrence's Church, Seal Chart, with which we share annual events and our vicar.
