We invite you to join us at our services
On Sunday afternoons during Lent we will have the traditional Lent devotion of Stations of the Cross at 4.00pm.
Stations of the Cross invites us to walk with Jesus through the last events of His earthly life from being condemned to death by Pilate to being buried in a tomb. We stop at each of the 14 ‘Stations’ that are around the wall of our church, hear these events associated with each Station, and reflect on how they can help us in our Christian life. The service lasts about 40 minutes. As last year, we will be sharing this service jointly with our friends in our neighbouring parish of St Alban.
The Residents of Balfour, Coventry, Columbo and Brisbane Roads last night enjoyed Carols in the traditional manner again this year as we toured and collected donations in aid of The Children’s Society.
Those that braved the cold, were rewarded with mulled wine and mince pies kindly prepared by our Parish Priest, Fr Stephen.
We’ll be announcing next week how much we collected. It’s not too late to donate, please feel free to visit us at St Margaret’s.
We have updated the Calendar with the dates and times of all our Services throughout the Christmas period.

Little Crackers is the working title of a television show, directed by Caroline Quentin which will be shown at Christmas on SKY1.
Last Wednesday and Thursday Bwark Productions Ltd, after several preliminary visits, worked in and around the church hall, first preparing and then filming scenes for the show.
The scenes were set in a church hall at Christmas 1968.
There were lots of decorations and a large tree inside and the snow arrived outside at just the right time! A great deal of work went into one day’s filming. We will get photographs of the filming but these cannot be released until after the show has been broadcast. They left us the Christmas tree so, if it lasts, we will use it at St Margaret’s at Christmas 2012.
Harvest Thanksgiving. We will also be collecting for the Crisis Appeal.
Please do come along and celebrate Eucharist with us and help collect for this vital service. Sunday 30th completes our year of fundraising for Crisis.
You can find out more about Crisis by clicking here.
A date for your diary: AFTERNOON TEA on Saturday 29 September, 2.00 to 4.30pm here at St Margaret’s.
Please come along, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and cake and catch up with friends.
Any money raised will be for the Crisis Appeal.
Open Garden this year is on the 7th July. All proceeds will be donated to The Children’s Society.
