St Margaret's Open house - 1st Saturday of the month
St Margaret's Open Days
St Margaret's Church is now open from 10.30am until 4.30pm on the first Saturday of every month for visitors to come and appreciate our beautiful Church. Occasionally, you may also be able to view an exhibition or listen to a concert rehearsal depending on the events happening in church that weekend.
The Church is stewarded during this time and the stewards are all very friendly and helpful.
There are maps for you to follow with your attention drawn to major points of interest. We also have more detailed booklets describing the history and the decoration, the organ, the clocks and some of the people who have worked and worshipped here in the past.
We are delighted to announce that we have a new children's trail designed for us by Greenwich& Blackheath Decorative Fine Arts Societies. The beautifully illustrated trail guides children around the different areas of the church highlighting design features, Christian symbolism and providing interesting facts about our richly decorated Church. The trail is available free of charge to visitors on open days.
There is also some information on both churchyards and a list of the local people remembered in our two War Memorials - one for the Boer War and one for WWI.
We are always happy to be given new information about the the Church, the parish and, of course, the people.
There are cards and CDs available to buy.
