The Parish Church of St Margaret Rottingdean - A Guide

About the Author - Maureen Blakey

It was early in 1983 I began to worship at St Margaret’s Church.  I was confirmed on April 8th 1984.   As time went by I became involved with the church in many ways.  I was a flower arranger for 25 years.  I also clean the church brass.  I am one of a team who ‘welcome’ on a Sunday morning at the 9.30am Eucharist; I find this a great pleasure.  I also serve on the PCC.  To be part of church affairs and its future for me is a great privilege.

Having travelled widely as an ‘Army wife’, I had 21 homes in 19 years – to finally settle here in the village, I can say to St Margaret’s Church and Rottingdean – this is home, I am truly blessed.

As a point of interest St Margaret’s was one of the first churches to have electricity.
