About Us

A village church in the inner city

St. Margaret’s is a challenging Christian community, dynamic, creative, inclusive of a wide variety of viewpoints. We are a people of global concern, striving through education to develop alternatives to conflict and injustice. 


To do this, we build local networks that make a difference. We value religious and cultural diversity, working with Faith communities as equal partners.

St. Margaret’s takes as its role model the values of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels: compassion, encouragement, forgiveness. Contemporary role models are also a source of guidance. 

We are both a place and a people raising awareness, leading to personal empowerment, or in traditional language, spiritual well being.

A message from Robert :

Today is the most beautiful festival of the whole year. It is without angst, in that there is an absence of the consumerism of Christmas and the violence that surrounds Easter. Today, Pentecost (Whitsunday) is about affirmation of the individual.


 'And there appeared unto them cloven tongues, like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them; and they all filled with the holy ghost.'


Please read the Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 2, 1-11


This is our 11th week in which we are not able to meet as a congregation.

However you celebrate Pentecost, enjoy it. Pick flowers in the garden, enjoy the food you eat together, make it special.

Black Lives Matter

Open Letter to President Donald Trump

Open letter to The Bishop of Manchester 30/07/2012

"When we discussed the issues around gay marriage in St Margaret’s Church, Whalley Range the majority opinion was accepting of gay marriage.  One person voiced an opinion that he would struggle with it being in church but most wouldn’t.  It may be that his voice is more typical of the church than the rest of our congregation but nevertheless it is the sort of difference we can move forward together on."
