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.
