3 churches rooted in Christ, growing together, transforming communities
We are a welcoming multi-national all-age congregation seeking to offer sanctuary in the bustling town centre of Edgware. Whether you are a casual visitor during the hours the church is open for prayer, a regular at our Wednesday coffee morning (10am - 12 noon) or a curious seeker of God in your life, we are here to offer sanctuary.
We focus on the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the doorway to salvation in our worship, preaching, activities and outreach. We host weekly small Life Groups as an aid to fellowship and spiritual growth, where everyone can connect with others and share our lives.

She is passionate about mission and worship, and is a regular advocate for persecuted Christians in Pakistan and she and her husband, Hammad Baily, have an international music ministry, Voice for Jesus.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has awarded £19,988 to Edgware Parochial Church Council to turn the churchyard at St Margaret of Antioch in Station Road, Edgware, into a multifunctional space for the community.
The funding comes as part of a £1.13million pot which has been awarded to 55 projects across the capital through the Mayor's Greener City Fund Community Green Space Grants 2018.
The grants aim to give people the chance to create new and improved green spaces in the hope to make London the first national park city, with more than half of the capital green by 2050.
Andrew Dismore, London Assembly member for Barnet and Camden, said: 'This is very welcome news for the people of Edgware..."
Rev Sally Baily, Vicar of St Margaret's Church said: "We are delighted to receive this grant which will enable us to transform the churchyard into a sanctuary for the local community to come and rest in this historic, tranquil green space in the heart of Edgware."
Consultation with local community members and stakeholders will take place in the coming weeks. If you would like to find out more about the plans for developing the churchyard and contribute ideas please come along to St Margaret's church on one of the following dates:
Thursday 8th February 10.30am
Please contact email@example.com to confirm your attendance at one of these sessions.
We have produced a short video to explain some of the ideas we have for improving the churchyard.
Come and join us on Saturday 23rd March at 6pm to watch the film
