3 churches rooted in Christ, growing together, transforming communities

St Margaret’s - What we doSt Margarets Edgware

We believe that God's purpose for St Margaret's at this time is..

  • to be a sanctuary connecting people with God's love and hope,
  • equipping and empowering people to live out the good news of Jesus.

This mission statement informs all that we do as a church and the way we welcome people, offering hospitality and love, and encouraging people to live out their faith day to day.

As the oldest surviving building in the Barnet part of Edgware, we have a role in providing historic narrative, linking our community to its own past and offering clues to its present identity. We try to stay accessible and open, offering shared space to a community threatened with increasing fragmentation.

We are in dialogue with other faith-groups and cooperate with the large local synagogues in community outreach projects such as the Days and Atkinsons Almshouse Charity. Being one of a team of three churches also helps us to model unity in the midst of diversity.
