Keep in touch with Rev Wil North:




Greetings from St Margaret's!

If we haven't had the chance to meet I'd like to introduce myself!  I'm Wil North, Rector of St Margaret's Church (off South Street in Church Lane).

It is my privilege to try to serve the parish in lots of ways.  One of my roles is being a Governor at the school.  I have the opportunity to take assemblies throughout the year, host services at St Margaret's and help to run 'Kings Squad' - a Christian club for those in Years 3 to 6 which meets on Monday lunchtimes (12.30 pm to 1.10 pm).

I wanted to also let you know of a few other activities which you and/or your children may be interested in.

All Age Worship - 10 am at St Margaret's every first Sunday of the month.  An engaging service designed to be accessible to all.

Sunday Club - every Sunday (except the first) in Church cross house (church Lane, off south street) 9.50 am-11.15 am for children age 4 to 11.  The session includes games, craft and a Bible story.

Messy Church - every 2nd and 4th Sunday in term time at the Village Hall on Heath Rd, 4 pm-5.15 pm.  A fun, informal way for the family to learn more about the Christian faith through stories, song, activities and food! 

If you're interested in any of the above do just turn up or get in touch for more details!
