Community ministries

Bishopdale's community is important for St Margaret's, which is why we have a number of community ministries.


Our mission is to be a dynamic community of faith helping people to be lifelong followers of Jesus.



Gathering: Sundays@10am, Isleworth School Hall

(See below for changes to Summer Service time & place!)


The congregation of St Margaret's is active and engaging with life after our main church building was destroyed through arson. We are thrilled to now have that building demolished, it’s great to see an empty section waiting for a new church. At present we are in the planning & consultation stage as we push ahead towards building a church and community facility.  

In the meantime our congregation continues to gather for Sunday Services, 10 am at Isleworth School Hall.  However, over the Christmas and summer period from 17 December 2017 through until 21 January 2018, Services will be held back at the St Margaret’s site, 94 Farrington Ave, in The Hub (the office and community building).

Christmas is a great time to attend church and celebrate the season, we welcome anyone who would like to join us.  Please see below for details:

God's relentless love is what gives us hope and is the source of our life and service. With God's help, we seek to grow as a community of worship, witness and discipleship which is warm and honest about life and faith; a place where God's hospitality is experienced and practised in Bishopdale and the wider contexts of our lives.

Be part of an all-age community learning to follow Jesus in the power of the Spirit, and appreciate what this means for the world God loves.
