Our Services

We will resume public worship in time for the latter part of Holy Week and Easter. Numbers will be limited to 30 and, as at Christmas, we will operate a booking system: please contact Heather Butler to reserve your place. Services will be as follows:

Maundy Thursday – Eucharist at 1000
Good Friday – church open for private prayer & devotion from 1200-1500 (no booking required

Holy Saturday – a simple Easter Vigil at 1900
Easter Sunday – Holy Communion (BCP) at 0800; Eucharists at 1000 and 1130

Thereafter, all being well, we will revert to the pattern of a Thursday Eucharist at 1000 and two Sunday Eucharists at 1000 and 1130. It would be helpful if you would indicate which of the Sunday services you plan to attend.

The church building will continue to be open for private prayer: Monday to Saturday 1400 - 1500

It is a LEGAL REQUIREMENT that you must wear a facemask when coming to Church for Private Prayer or Services.

By 1000 each Sunday there is a pre-recorded Service of the Word on our website www.stmargaret.org.uk
