What to expect when you come to church on Sundays
Whether you are new to church or just moved into the area and are looking for a local church, we want you to feel comfortable, so here’s a bit about what to expect on Sunday’s.
Sunday Morning Worship
Our Sunday morning worship officially starts at 11am and if you come from 10.30am onwards you will find a warm welcome, coffee/tea and homemade cakes available before the service. If you are new to church don’t worry there are no rules about where to sit, just find a seat where you feel comfortable and can see one of the screens. There is no dress code, just come as you are. You will find a colourful array of cultures, nationalities and age groups in our church.
The service starts with the band playing a contemporary song at 10.55am to create the atmosphere of worship and then everyone joins in a more traditional hymn on the organ . Everything that we sing or say together is on the screens. The predominant worship style is contemporary (Hillsong, Jesus Culture, New Wine). There will be a bible reading and a talk every week, and on the fourth Sunday of the month we have Holy Communion. After the service more refreshments are served and our prayer team are available to pray with you in the prayer corner.
Children & Youth
We welcome children and young people at St Margaret’s. For children under 5 years old there is the children’s corner stacked with soft toys, building blocks and a train track to build. For Primary school children we have a group of willing Sunday School teachers who are keen to see you and restart our Power Praisers group. Our secondary school age youth all stay in the main service and follow the adult teaching stream. They are encourage to join in with leading the monthly All Age service or get involved in one of the many serving teams. We currently have 14 young people from across the parish on our CPAS Growing Leaders Youth course out of which we hope to start a monthly youth group.
All our sermons are recorded and uploaded to SoundCloud. So if you miss a week in a series you can catch up by listening online via Soundcloud.

On the third Sunday of each month we have an evening worship service which is predominately praise and worship. The theme may vary each month including an annual Thanksgiving and Remembering Service in June, Voice for Jesus Concerts in October and February and a Youth Celebration service in September. The worship style is contemporary and we are delighted to have worshippers from other churches in Edgware, Chesham and London joining us on different occasions. This evening is intended to be a soaking in the Holy Spirit and prayer ministry is available.
