Ash Wednesday - the beginning of Lent

On Ash Wednesday (March 6th) there will be a traditional Sung Eucharist at 10 a.m. including the imposition of ashes (a small cross is put on the forehead) to remind us of the season of penitence which is beginning and that we are dust, 'and to dust we shall return'.

Arrangements for Confession at this time can be made by contacting Fr Andrew.

Oh yes there is!  During March and the season of Lent (which ends at Easter), St. Margaret's will be providing a simple nutritious free lunch for the community every Thursday in the Church Centre. A team of Church members will be serving delicious soups, bread rolls, fruit and drinks to whoever would like a free lunch!  This includes elderly people living alone, young mums wanting to get out of the house, even people on their lunch hour from work! 

 

The Spring Lunches for the Community are our project to serve the community during Lent, by bringing people together and serving good healthy food!  Thursdays 12-2p.m. in the Church Centre

 

Sunday 10th March  4 p.m. Jam Café in Church Centre

 

Living on purpose

Did you know that God has a purpose for your life?

The Bible tells us that every Christian has been ‘called according to his (God's) purpose'.

God has eternal purposes in which he wants you to play your part.

This spring in a series of Messages at the main Sunday service, and mid-week study groups, we will be looking at God's purposes for your life. Are you ready to discover what they are? 

The Sunday messages begin on Sunday February 24th.

The two ‘Living on Purpose' study groups meet on Tuesdays, 2.30 p.m. in the Church Room

and 8 p.m. at 2, Pinewood Close.

You do not have to be a Sunday attender to take part. Please contact Fr Andrew for more details.

Sunday Creche at 10 a.m.

We now run a creche for babies & toddlers at the Sunday 10 a.m. service. The creche begins after the first hymn.

 

 

Our Jam Ministry

Jam Café   is a monthly opportunity for families to meet up with friends in a relaxed atmosphere, ending the weekend with delicious snacks, coffee or juice, take part in a Bible-themed family activity and join your children in some singing and a simple Bible story. The 'Jam Café   take away' gives adults some input reflecting on the theme of the day to use at home.

Jam Café is open 4-5 p.m. on Sunday March 10th. See you there!

Helping Slough Foodbank

Twice a month we deliver donated essential food items to the Slough Foodbank for those who are in need. Stan & Sue Smith kindly deliver the crates of donations.   A list of currently needed items is posted on the noticeboard in the Church annexe and we welcome your donations.

Giving to the poor is at the heart of the Christian gospel.

                        The Bible says that ‘God loves the one who gives gladly' (2 Corinthians 9: 7).

 

The Last Chord!  

            

Our organist & choir leader since 2012,  Chris Daubney, played his last chord at the Eucharist on November 25th. 2018. 

Here he is cutting his retirement cake in the Church Room after the service !

Typically, he went on to play at a wedding that same day and a Memorial service on the following Monday!

Chris has made an invaluable contribution to our church over the last six years, working untold extra hours to train our choir and even arranging an appearance for them on TV last Christmas!  He will be greatly missed.

We wish Chris a long and happy retirement!

 

We were pleased to welcome Chan Chun-Ho in December as our probationary organist.
