Healing and Thanksgiving - 1st Sunday in the month. A time set aside for healing and thanksgiving.
Taize - Last Sunday in the month – 6pm.
Taize is a service of meditation, reflection and prayer, with simple songs and chants. We are normally seated in a semi circle around a cross made in France. The space is alight with candles inside & the large cross outside. It's a time to reflect on our lives & our relationship with God.
Taize is a village in France (www.taize.fr) and up to 5000 young people visit this religious community each week seeking questions to a meaning of life. We enter the space with expectant hearts and depart in silence into the night.
At a baptism service, parents make searching and serious promises about their own relationship with Jesus and raising their children in a relationship with Jesus. Then, following the 1st century tradition we pour water on the baby’s head as a sign of God’s loving welcome into his family.
Please contact our parish to arrange an appointment with one of the clergy or email us for more information.
We encourage you to join one of our services prior to baptism to familiarise yourselves with our worship and feel welcome as you prepare for this important life event.
A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping. The funeral can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.
To arrange a Funeral Service Where death is imminent, the clergy appreciate the opportunity to minister to the dying person and the family, and to assist the family when death has occurred.
The funeral arrangements are usually made through funeral directors, and the clergy of St Margaret’s support the family with arranging the order of service, music selection and special requirements that honour the life of the deceased.
Everyone is entitled to a burial service or to have their ashes buried by their local priest regardless of whether they attended church or not. St. Margaret’s church is available for funerals, or we often conduct services at crematorium chapels.
The choice of venue for your wedding plays an important part in the overall ceremony. Whether you decide to hold the ceremony at St Margaret’s, in a chapel or an outside venue, we will support you in offering the Anglican rites of marriage.
It is a requirement that one of the couple is baptised (not necessarily Anglican) . Once you have made a decision to be married through St Margaret’s, the first step is to book the date and first appointment through our office.
The Notice of Intended Marriage Form needs to be completed, signed and given to the minister at a minimum of 1 month and 1 day before the wedding day, otherwise you need to go to court to get permission to be married.
