Help for Visitors

Please ask for code on arrival at church.

Each year we participate in the London Open House Weekend event usually held in September. Over the weekend, the church is open to visitors to take a tour, apart from Sunday between 11.00 am - 12.30 pm when it is in use for worship. Booklets are available to borrow, to take self-guided tours of the building, and there are always people on hand to answer any specific questions that you may have. We look forward to welcoming you.

Our guidebook is available on request for £5 each. There are also separate booklets with specific information about the organ, the stained glass, the artisans who helped to create the church, available on request, price £2.50. All proceeds go towards the upkeep of the building.


Other Features

Our parishioners are regular contributors to the local foodbank at St. Margaret's church. All of our harvest donations also go to the foodbank.
