St Margaret Lothbury

St Margaret’s has been open each weekday for about four hours for over six months now but from 12th April these hours will be extended & the church building opened at 8.30am each day until 4pm. Services are now both in person and online. The organ recitals will begin on the 20th May.

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.

Thank you so much for helping to keep St Margaret’s alive with your generosity.

A message from the Rector, Jeremy Crossley

Dear All,

It’s a year ago today that the Government allowed public buildings, including churches, to reopen after the first lockdown had been eased & at St Margaret’s we opened up immediately & have done so almost every day since then. It has been great to see church members who have been in the City-even if only for that day-& to welcome that small trickle of visitors in London from other parts of the UK.

Although almost everything we do remained online during 2020, this year has seen a hybrid pattern of worship developing with our services on Tuesday & Wednesday being live streamed & this combination of in person & on line will, I imagine, continue for sometime. Our Monday Prayer for the City at 7.45am will continue on zoom with invitations sent to any who wish to join. On Thursday the Men’s Ministry continues on line although our weekly organ recital is in person & both are drawing good crowds.

Amidst all this, Will Jackson, our Worship Pastor & his wife Ruth have recently had their first child, a baby girl which is wonderful news. All three of them are very well & while Will is naturally on paternity leave at the moment we’re looking forward to his return & hearing more.

Having enjoyed a wonderful few days with friends in North Norfolk last week I realised afresh how much fun it is to go on holiday & I hope that all of you will be able to enjoy a similar experience over the next couple of months.

With prayers & best wishes,

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. On Monday mornings a prayer meeting is held, online, between 7.45 and 8.45am. All are welcome – come when you can, go when you need to.

Men’s Ministry

The Men’s Group meets every Thursday, online, at 8am. It’s 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.

More about our services and events

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 are holding our 2021 APCM on 26 April. All reports for the Lothbury APCM will be made available as soon as possible.

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.
