At Holy Communion, we gather at the altar or the Lord’s Table to share bread and wine together symbolising the body and blood of Jesus who died for us on the cross.   Hymns are sung, the bible is read and explained and prayers are said.  All who have been baptised* and own Jesus as their Lord are welcome to receive the bread and the wine at communion otherwise a blessing is offered. Children from year 3 in school who belong to our church receive some instruction if their parents agree they should receive communion regularly.  Those who wish to play a full part in the life of the church are invited to be prepared for confirmation*
Morning Prayer is a very old and traditional service of the church with hymns and psalms and prayers.  The bible is also read and explained in the sermon.
‘All Age Worship’ is a chance for children and grown ups to pray together.  There are activities for everyone to take part in to help us understand the bible.  Alongside older hymns are lively simple songs.  It is a very informal time when we can enjoy being together.   Baptisms sometimes take place in this service.
  • Refreshments are served after every service, a good time to catch up and have a chat.

Sunday Club meets in the Hall to the rear of the church on second, third and fourth Sunday’s in the month.  On second and fourth Sundays, children join with the congregation in church for the final part of the service.

*Baptisms otherwise known as Christenings take place by arrangement either during Sunday worship or on the second Sunday of the month at 1.30pm or 2.30pm.  If you want your family to know Jesus personally and to be part of his church, then baptism is a good idea.

Please make contact with Doris White, (Tel 01978 310323, email the Pastoral Assistant who looks after baptisms if you would like to explore this possibility.  You will be invited to come along to church for a Sunday service to make the arrangements.

*Confirmation is the ceremony when the bishop lays his hands on and prays for those who want to take their baptism seriously in adult life.  It happens to those over the age of 11 years and after preparation.  People who wish to be Godparents should be both baptised and confirmed. Please contact the vicar if you are interested.

Weddings are arranged through the vicar, Jonathan.  There is a charge, but we would not want lack of money to be a reason not to get married in St Margaret’s.

Funerals We welcome funeral services in St Margaret’s which are followed by cremation or burial elsewhere.  The Funeral director will make contact with us if you were considering using St Margaret’s.  Again, there is a charge but it can be negotiable if things are tight.
