ORGAN RECITAL (except in August)
1310-1400 at St Margaret Lothbury


We believe in the power of prayer. We have a loving Heavenly Father who longs to meet with us as we talk to him about the things that worry us and the things that make us happy.

At the end of the informal services there are always people from the prayer ministry team available to pray. Members of the prayer team are also available at St Margaret’s on Wednesday evenings anytime between 1715-1815.

Also on Friday mornings a Prayer Meeting is held between 0745-0845. All are welcome – come when you can, go when you need to.

Women’s Ministry

St Margaret’s host two women’s groups. Both offer the chance to meet with other City workers who fully understand the unique complexities, challenges and pressures of working in the City of London.


A women’s prayer group meet between 1305 and 1335 on the first working Monday of the month. Prayer and testimony at this group is humbling and inspirational. You are warmly invited to join us or, if you cannot, to pray remotely at the same time and have our voices meet as one at God’s ear.


A women’s Bible study group meet between 0800 and 0900 every Wednesday. The main focus of this group is to strengthen trust in God, share love of Jesus, and attune to promptings of the Spirit. A strong safety net of support, encouragement, guidance and fellowship also plays a large part, as does laughter and pastries. You are warmly invited to join us.

If you would like to know more about either group, or if you have a prayer request, please contact admin@stml.org.uk

Men’s Ministry

The Men’s Group meets every Thursday at 0800 in St Margarets Lothbury. Its a great opportunity to get connected with other men who work in the City of London. For more information or if you would like to join please contact the Church via email. admin@stml.org.uk


St Margaret Lothbury and St Mary Woolnoth are CofE parish churches at the heart of the City of London. We aim to serve those working in the Square Mile; to be on hand to pray for them, to hold services, which are sensitive to the time constraints and pressures of the City, to provide other opportunities to meet with other Christians and to offer a place for reflection and prayer throughout the week.

At the heart of our life is a commitment to worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ and making it possible for others to experience His love. We aim to offer a variety of services that will enable anyone to feel at home.

APCM & Reports

We held our 2018 APCM on 30 April. All reports for the Lothbury and Woolnoth APCM will be made available as soon as possible.


The main services of the week are our two informal lunchtime services on Wednesday at St Margaret Lothbury and on Thursday at St Mary Woolnoth. Although they last from 1250-1400 they are planned so that you may come when you can and go when you have to. On Tuesday each week there are more traditional Holy Communion services at 1230 at St Mary Woolnoth and 1310 at St Margaret Lothbury. These usually last around 30 minutes. Read a welcome from our Rector, Jeremy Crossley.

Like many City Churches all our records are now held by the London Metropolitan Archives.
