The Parish of Ifield holds a variety of Worship Services...
Main Sung Sunday Parish Eucharist
Monthly 'Re-Fresh Service' - "For church but not as we know it"
Month 'FIISH Service' - "Family Service - Very Relaxed and enjoyable"
The church stays open From Morning Prayer at 08:30 until after evening prayer at 17:30. Please note that during public holidays when the Parish Office is closed, the church may be closed too. e.g. - Christmas & Easter Holidays.
We'd love you to join us at any of our services. If you're worried about bringing children, don't! We are a a family, and people of all ages are welcome to worship at St Margaret's.
Is a different kind of church service on the 4th Sunday of every month at St Margaret's Church, Ifield starts at 9:30 and lasts 45 minutes.
Suitable for all ages, including yours, whatever that might be.
We won't ask how old you are, honest! People seem to like it.
Welcome! We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, straight, gay, confused, well-heeled or down at heel. We welcome wailing babies and excited toddlers. We welcome you whether you can sing like Pavarotti or just growl quietly to yourself. You’re welcome here if you’re just ‘browsing’, just woken up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been to church for ten years.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, are down in the dumps or don’t like ‘organised religion’.
We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here because granny is visiting and wants to come to church. We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throats as kids or got lost on the by-pass and wound up here by mistake. We welcome pilgrims, tourists, seekers, doubters... and you!
Join in where and when you want. Stand up, sit down; sing out loud or just reflect on the words - whatever suits you best.
We are so pleased that you’re here!
