The Church is a family of people not a building. Whilst our doors are now closed for public worship in the normal way, we are not ceasing our daily ministry of prayer worship and most critically at this time pastoral care in this parish. Our prayer and worship cycle will continue in a “non-public” way as advertised. If you wish to assist in making our objectives so, please contact Fr David on firstname.lastname@example.org 07768687605
All material for you to enjoy a “virtual Service” in you own home can be found by clicking HERE. The page also has Father David’s latest Pastoral Letter
We welcome you to the Parish of Saint Margaret of Antioch Leigh-on-Sea where in 2019 we celebrated 100 years of serving West Leigh. The Rev’d Fr.David Wylie RN has been parish priest since November 2017.
At St.Margaret’s we are orthodox and traditional in our belief and practice as a parish church in the Church of England for the whole community. This essentially means that we welcome all people who live, work and pass through our parish and we would seek to serve them regardless of age gender denomination faith background or none. We are not perfect but try our best to honour God with the resources we have and you are welcome to help us be a little better.
For an overview of our 2020 programme of Services and other events, please see our 2020 Calendar Card
