St. Margaret's is a friendly village church with a community built around the shared life of Jesus Christ and worship is central to everything we do. By tradition the Church is middle of the road Anglican with moderate Catholic ceremonial (vestments, Reserved Sacrement). As the only Church in the village we try to provide something for all tastes. We have strong loyalty to the Book of Common Prayer and are one of the few village Churches still to offer choral evensong. We are also exploring contemporary worship and enjoy a wide musical tradition from classic anthems to modern worship songs.

Our bell ringers are the finest in the county and we are very proud of our work with children and young people. The Church's year is fully celebrated with many moving and well attended special services at festivals. Our congregation expect intelligent, relevant preaching and we are beginning to discover the value of home fellowship groups and other less formal ways of being in church together.
