St Margaret’s Church

St. Margaret’s, known as ‘the church on Parliament Square’, is a 12th-century church next to Westminster Abbey. It’s also sometimes called ‘the parish church of the House of Commons’. Everyone’s welcome to visit or come along to our services.

Services at St Margaret’s

We hold one regular service each week, normally the Sung Eucharist on Sundays at 11:00am. This is a traditional-language service that lasts for about an hour, and is followed by refreshments.
