WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE BELIEVE
“God is love, and those who live in love live in God, and God lives in them” 1 John 4:16
We believe we should share that good news of Jesus, equip people in their faith journey and see them live their faith out, in the world. We are devoted to worshipping God and his Son Jesus through prayer and praise. Being a Christian is far more than knowing the facts of Jesus’ life, or agreeing to what Christians hold as true. It is a way of living, based on the belief that God is love, and the more we make that love present, the more God is revealed in the world.
BIBLE STUDY GROUP
Along with our weekly services, we at St Margaret’s meet regularly to explore the riches of the Scriptures in a small but lively study group. We read and discuss Bible passages and also look at related topics such as the Creed, the Liturgy and the true meaning of the main Christian Feast, like Easter and Christmas. These groups are led by our Lay Reader, Eckart Floether.

HOW TO PRAY
Many people ask the question’ How do I pray?’
For many Prayer is a daily, moment by moment, experience of talking to, listening to, and being with God. Talking to God, because our natural impulse is to share, to express the joys and sorrows we all know; listening, by opening our hearts to God’s voice and guidance in scripture.
Simply being with God, in a relationship where words aren’t always needed and sitting in God’s presence is enough. At a very basic level one might simply find a space in which to be quiet and bring to mind the people or situations for whom you wish to pray. Words can be helpful, but are not essential.
