Dear All,

I’m not very good at taking holidays but last week I had the most wonderful time in France with two of my closest friends. It was great-the weather, the food, the rosé, and the beach were perfect & I had the opportunity to join the Lothbury services online which is, understandably, rare for me.

Stephen Baxter led a moving Holy Communion service on Tuesday & on Wednesday the combination of Tom Smith leading worship & Will preaching was clearly Spirit filled-both services are very well worth watching if you missed them.

Life at St Margaret’s continues apace & for the first year since before Covid we have weddings here-indeed there is one tomorrow. Summer, of course, is also when we traditionally have the opportunity to meet for drinks after work in the church garden from 5pm & there are four dates over the next couple of months which I thought I’d let you know now. 

They are July 31st, August 6th, August 21st & September 25th. 

Because most of what happens at St Margaret’s does so at lunchtime we rarely get the opportunity to meet others with whom we worship each week & these evenings give us the chance to do so us to do so. I’m already praying for good weather!

I hope you have a 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. Unfortunately due to technical difficulties the services from Wednesday 3rd July and Tuesday 9th July aren’t available online. We apologised for any disappointment.

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.

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.
