Morning Service (with The Lord's Supper)

Every First Sunday at for 1 hour, 15 mins
St James' Church, Westgate and Garlinge
Canterbury Road Westbrook, Margate Margate, CT9 5JU, GB

The morning service is our main weekly gathering when the majority of people who attend St James' will meet. There is a full youth and children's programme laid on each week, ranging from a creche through to teens. This service also includes the Lord's Supper.

We sing a blend of contemporary and traditional hymns and songs and prayers are said. At the heart of the service is time to read from God's word, the Bible, and listen to a sermon. There is always an opportunity to stay behind afterwards to chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
