Welcome to St Mary & St Margaret

Welcome to the website for St Mary and St Margaret Church! We are a thriving and inclusive all-age congregation from many walks of life.  While many people come from the local community – the “village setting” of Castle Bromwich with its Hall and Gardens – many others are drawn from further afield and from different Christian traditions. 

Our Parish Communion service combines a vibrant blend of good music, contemporary and more traditional liturgies and accessible preaching explores scripture in the context of our challenging post-modern society. We do not shy away from the difficult issues of our times.  

Mission, Outreach, Thanksgiving and celebration are at the heart of our ethos. This is reflected in the Parish Communion, the celebration of God's gift of creation. Celebration is also at the heart of our active social life, fellowship and study and prayer groups. Our well-used Community Hall is helping us to grow as a Church, providing space for alternative worship, groups for children and older people and as a place to reach out to our local community.

Our Parish Office is now closed until 6th September 

I shall be available 2pm to 4pm Monday and Wednesday and Saturday  12pm to 4pm
In case of emergency please call or text and if I can I will help 
My number is 07748723018 Lisa Wakeman, Church Warden

Following the Government's announcement regarding restriction changes from Monday 19th July, we have been considering how we proceed moving forward, taking into consideration all of our church family and volunteers.  Whilst we know we are moving in the right direction, we are also aware that risks still remain and some of our community continue to feel vulnerable at this time.  Therefore we have taken the decision to continue with our Covid procedures for regular worship for the time being.  We will therefore be continuing with online bookings in the short term along with requesting face masks to be worn, sanitising points and applying socially distanced seating.    We will keep these procedures under review and will provide updates on any changes as they happen. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
