‘To do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God’

Welcome to the website of St Margaret’s church, West Hoathly where you can find out more about us.

We are a friendly Anglican church and welcome visitors to join our services. People have been worshipping God in our church for 926 years now. Our aim is to continue this tradition of faith and service in a relevant and meaningful way today.

St. Margaret’s is open for you to visit, pray or just find a quiet place every day during office hours.  If you are travelling a long way to visit us please feel free to telephone or email us first.

Our vicar, The Venerable Lionel Whatley, retired from St. Margaret’s on Sunday 5th December 2016. We thank him for his 5 years of faithful service at St. Margaret’s and wish him and Sue well in his retirement. The church has now entered a period of interregnum but services will continue to be held at church with any changes updated regularly on the website.

We are delighted to let you know that Bishop Martin and the Rev'd Peter Francis will be with us at St Margaret's this Sunday at 10am. Bishop Martin will be celebrating and preaching and we do hope you will be able to join us. Coffee will be served as usual after the service and this will give an opportunity to meet and talk with Bishop Martin.
