St Margaret's supports two Mission Partners - Gautam Money in India with the Church Mission Society (CMS).

Our International committee keeps in touch with our Mission Partners and organises the Christian Aid Week appeal, as well as other appeals at Christmas and Lent. The International committee also oversees our exchange link with the parish of Kristinehamn in Sweden (the diocese of Karlstad is linked to Chelmsford). Our partnership with Kristinehamn includes prayer for each other, developing a better understanding of each other and annual visits. On our last visit to Sweden, the parish of Kristinehamn presented St Margaret's with an icon of Christ blessing the children. Click here for photos from our last visit to Kristinehamn. In May 2006 a group from Kristinehamn visited St Margaret's and in September 2006 the Kristinehamn Youth Choir, Voxette, visited and performed for us.

St Margaret's also hosted the Diocesan service in January 2004 when the Agreement between Chelmsford and four diocese in Kenya was signed. The Chelmsford/Kenya Partnership is celebrated annually with a service; the last was on Sunday 25th June 2006 at 6.30pm in St Margaret's Church when we came together to pray and worship with others from both Chelmsford and Kenya and to meet over tea and coffee after the service.

Several International evenings have been held at St Margaret's when members of our congregation have come together to share food, fellowship and demonstrate a level of diversity which reflects that found in the Anglican Communion.

We also support the annual Christian Aid week and need people to deliver and collect envelopes in the local area. If you can help please give your name and phone number to Pat Nappin or to the church office.
