‘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 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. 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.

As children across Sussex return to their schools this week & many make the transition to new schools we pray for all teachers and students. (And here's a stained glass window showing St Benedict, patron saint of schoolchildren, as he's sent off to school in the fifth century - already dressed in his monk's habit at the age of about four).
