St Margaret's 150 year anniversary.

..

March 12 th. 1862 March 12 th. 2012

St Margaret's celebrated 150 years on March 12th. 2012.  The church was consecrated on March 12th. 1862 by Samuel Wilberforce, Bishop of Oxford. It had been built in the previous 10 months at a cost of £2,645.3s.7½d.    Before 1862, Iver Heath had been part of the ancient parish of St. Peter, Iver.

With a growing population and the distance from St Peter's church, there was an increasing need for a church in Iver Heath and St Margaret's was built in 1861 - 1862. The new church was assigned a District Chapelry by Queen Victoria on July 19th. 1862.   In November 1862 the first priest, George Elton, was appointed and in 1867 he was made the Rector. There have been 9 rectors since 1862, our present Rector was inducted on July 12th, 2012.

There were special services and a walk from St Peter's Iver to celebrate the 150 years of St. Margaret's on the actual anniversary of the consecration and more celebrations took place during the Patronal Festival weekend in July. St. Margarets Day is July 21st. 

 

 

Leaving St Peters

The walk from St. Peters Iver to

St Margaret's Iver Heath took place on Saturday March 10th 2012.

Pictured left:

William Sparrow Ward who as Vicar of Iver in the mid 19th century gave vigorous support to the building of a new church for Iver Heath.

Pictured right:

Two miles and 50 minutes later the group arrived at St. Margaret's where a thanksgiving service was held. The bible and prayer book used at the service were those presented to St Margaret's in 1862. Members of the congregation were able to view items of historical interest, photographs and hand crafts that were on display in the church before enjoying a light lunch in the Parish Centre.
