St Margaret Lothbury
Latest mail out
It has been very encouraging to hear of how some of us have appreciated the first in the series on Peace from Paul’s letter to the first century Philippian Christians which I mentioned a couple of weeks ago.
It has been produced by our friends at Burning Heart & Cliff, Will & I watched the second installment earlier today; each of us was struck by different things but all three of us were deeply moved by the testimony of the Pastor from Northern Nigeria who spoke of the difference Jesus had made in the face of terrible violence by Boko Haram; of a supernatural joy that sustained them in the face of human nature at its worst.
Here in Lothbury, it has been great, too, over the last few weeks to see people returning to the City & to Church, as well new people coming to worship whether quietly on Tuesday or more exuberantly on Wednesday & to have a good crowd at the concerts of Organ music on Thursday.
Those of us who meet on Zoom each Monday morning to pray for the City have also been praying more for the church in recent weeks. I believe we are beginning to see answers to those prayers so please keep praying at some point each week for the City & all who work here as well as for the life of St Margaret’s.
I’m writing this on Thursday so I hope it’s not too early to wish you a very good weekend.
Welcome to St Margaret Lothbury
St Margaret’s is open throughout the day, Monday to Friday.
We hold services throughout the week, to which you are warmly invited.
Holy Communion service– Tuesday at 1.10pm.
Informal Worship- Wednesday at 1pm.
All our services are also available online on our Youtube channel.
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.
Our regular income is obviously taking something of a hit at this time, so please consider supporting us by making an online donation, either as a one-off gift or as a regular monthly one.

The finances of the Lothbury parish
It costs about £220,000 a year to run our church. That is about £4,200 a week to ensure that the Clergy and church staff are paid, the building which is Grade 1 listed is properly maintained and heated, the parish affairs are efficiently run and our worship services continue to the highest standards. Our church relies for its upkeep on the giving of the congregation in financial support and. We do not receive any support from the State or the Church of England.
