Important information relating to our services: It is with deep regret that, with immediate effect, all services at St Margaret's Church are suspended until further notice.
Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your door behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by.
Despite being at home, we all seem to be joining in with lots of different celebrations and all the services. The anniversary of Victory in Europe Day was just an example, with people across the parish joining in with afternoon tea at 3pm on Friday 8 May and our service on the 10th. Fabulous! And it remains a busy time, next week on Thursday 21 May is Ascension Day, which will lead on to Pentecost. When we, through prayer, reflection, meditation and action, work to make the Kingdom to Come in the here and now. This year I thought it would be nice to follow Mary's journey through the 10 days between The Ascension and Pentecost - her thoughts, prayers and hopes - take a look at Thy Kingdom Come so you can celebrate and remember with me.
With all my love and every blessing.
‘A vibrant worshipping church, learning and growing together,
welcoming all, sharing God's love whilst serving our community'
