This month we prepare for ‘Holy Week' – a great story of the suffering and death of Jesus on Good Friday followed by the greatest mystery of all - the news that Jesus is not dead - he is alive - the resurrection which we celebrate on EASTER DAY. The services for ‘Holy Week' and Easter are on our Monthly Calendar page.
These events are for believers the centre of our lives, the most important news for our hearts and souls. Holy Week is the story of how Jesus willingly obeyed his Father's will - to suffer and die upon the cross for your sake. We can never repay him, but we can remember with thanksgiving and celebrate his wonderful sacrifice!
'pilgrim courses' for new followers and those who want to grow spiritually
This new year we launched a 'pilgrim course' at St. Margaret's for those interested in being baptised as adults and following Christ. These started in January and meet Sundays at 7.30pm. at The Rectory
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////// /(2, Pinewood Close, Iver Heath, SL0 0QS)
The 'pilgrim' set of courses are for practising Christians who want to grow spiritually and have been produced by the Church of England and use DVD's to supplement discussion and study.
The 'pilgrim' courses each have four parts, lasting six weeks. We aim to make following Jesus and growing in Christ more available and contemporary.
A 'pilgrim' course on the Bible is being held on Thursday evenings at the Church Centre starting at 8 pm. (last session March 22nd )
pilpilgrim course – the Bible – Thursdays at St. Margaret's at 8pm.
Being a Mother: the Mother of Jesus
On the fourth Sunday in Lent (11th March) we celebrate mothers. This day is now known as ‘Mother's Day' but our focus is on the wonder of motherhood which is exemplified and revealed to us in the great mystery of Mary, the Mother of God's Son Jesus Christ. The focus of our celebration is this mysterious relationship of love between mother and child, between the Virgin and her divine Son.
St. Margaret's is the local parish church of Iver Heath in the south of Buckinghamshire.
00We are here to serve God and to serve the people of Iver Heath by sharing our worship, our faith and fun!
00You are welcome to visit our services on Sundays and weekdays, to join one of our courses exploring the Christian faith and for your children to join in the fun at
our weekly children's clubs.
00You can be sure of a warm welcome whatever
your age or situation.
Rector: Fr. Andrew Montgomerie
New sound System
At last! The Church will be closed on 19th , 20th and 21st March as a splendid new Sound System is installed. Everything at St. Margaret's will sound so much better when the project is completed in time for Easter!
Many thanks to our project manager Chris Daubney who has overseen the development of this enhancement to our Church!
Our Jam Club got off to a great start this year despite the weather and lots of illness! We have been learning about the parables of Jesus and having lots of fun !
This month we are looking at the miracles of Jesus.
On Good Friday, March 30th, we have an Easter special.
Jam Tots is meeting Friday mornings and the mums, carers and children are having lots of fun. We recently took delivery of a trolley to hold children's coats and other outdoor wear while they play together. They also enjoy lovely treats and nice coffee provided by Marjorie. Please tell any young mums that you know about
Jam Tots take an Easter break from Good Friday (March 30th )
Jam Club Xtra has expanded this term to take in more activities. In the second half children who want to play games stay in the Scout Hut and other children go to the Village Hall where we use a room to do craft-work or drama. This has expanded the range of what we do, and also the number of children who can participate.
Jam Club Xtra takes an Easter break from Friday March 23rd .
Please pray for the Jam Tots team - Marjorie, Dee, Mary/and Father Andrew. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Focus on Giving
Although we have seen some exciting growth in our ministry with children, we are facing difficulty meeting our normal commitments. We have a projected shortfall of £4,000 at the end of this year. This is about our on-going commitment in Christ's service to pay our way and build the Christian community at St. Margaret's. For this reason, I am asking you to search your hearts and to respond, if you are committed to Jesus Christ and his Church, by revising your giving, with a target of 5% of income in mind.
Please prayerfully consider how you may be able to help us as together we reach out to our community with the Goodness of Jesus!
‘Each one of you must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.'
(Second Corinthians chapter 9 verse 7)
