Farewell Fr Christopher

On Wednesday 27th July, Fr Christopher will be leaving St Margarets, having provided us with all the Church’s services and support over a period of 2 ½ years. We wish him all the best wherever his future takes him.

Here is a final message from Fr Christopher before he leaves:

Dear Friends in Christ,

The time has flown by and I shall be going on Sabbatical which I am looking forward to.

A Message from Fr Christopher

Dear Friends in Christ,

I can now formally inform you that I shall be leaving St Margaret of Scotland. My time here has gone ever so quickly.

I shall be going on Sabbatical and my successor is Canon Peter Newby who will take up his position here in September and he will also be Chaplain to St Mary's University.

I take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for your kindness and generosity. I wish you all every blessing and may God bless you all.

Fr. Christopher

Would you like to join the Web Team?

I'm currently looking to recruit some members of the parish to help manage the website. This could ideally be suited to the younger members of the parish, but all are welcome to help. The only requirement is to be computer literate.

This is an opportunity to help support the community while also adding some experience to your CV. Areas which you could help in are:
