Church of England Diocese of Rochester Ifield

Opening

At present the Church cannot be open outside service times.

Getting here

From the A2 Gravesend East junction (Marling Cross), take the road to Cobham and turn right in about 1/4 mile into Church Road, which will lead you to the Church in a further 1/2 mile.


St Margaret's is very old (Saxon origins, with the first vicar on the board listed as starting work in 1227. His name was Adam - no record of his wife's name but you may guess!), very small (seating around 60) and very picturesque (the locals call it 'the Little House on the Prairie' Church').

There is a service every Sunday, with sermon and hymns, following a monthly pattern as follows:-

2nd Sunday 3pm January to March, 5pm April to October: All-Age worship (with refreshments afterwards)

(2nd Sunday in November: 9.30am Remembrance service, 2nd or 3rd Sunday in December: Carol and Christingle service) 

4th Sunday 9.30am All-Age Holy Communion (CW)

It sits in a very well-maintained Churchyard amid quiet fields. Many people visit the Churchyard, and many more cycle or walk along the lane. We have a steady stream of weddings, baptisms and interment of ashes - please contact us if you would like to enquire about having your service at St Margaret's. If you would like to do this in person, please come to our "office hour" any Thursday, 6-7pm, at the Rectory 18 Brenchley Avenue DA11 7RQ.

There is a small but dedicated congregation who worship faithfully and, through the "Friends of St Margaret's", raise money to pay for the upkeep and ministry of the Church.


You would be very welcome to join us, or to contact us to find out more. The Church will usually be open 3-5pm every Sunday afternoon from May-September

The church is available for parishes and groups to hire for Quiet Days.

St Margaret's is part of a united Benefice with Holy Family church, which means they are separate parishes but share a Priest-in-Charge. It also means people who live in St Margaret's parish can be married at Holy Family, and vice-versa.

The Benefice is part of the East Gravesend group of Anglican Churches, with St Aidan's (serving Westcourt and Riverview Park) and Christ Church Echo Square.
