Services

Our services are more traditional in style and attract both young and old and everyone in between.  We share Holy Communion every week; lasting for about 50 minutes, there's plenty of time to meet and greet after the service.

This is a traditional Anglican Prayer Book service; you can follow our daily readings by downloading 'ePray Daily' app FREE from your app store.

Regular service times:

Sunday   8 am - Holy Communion

Wednesday    10 am - Holy Communion


Healing and Thanksgiving - 1st Sunday in the month. A time set aside for healing and thanksgiving.


Monday 9.30 am  - 10.30 am - Christian Meditation

Baptism

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.

Weddings

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.

Why not get married on the beautiful grounds of the heritage listed St Margaret’s Chapel at HOTA, Home of the Arts for your upcoming wedding?!

Funerals

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 honor 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.
