St Margaret’s is a church made up of people from many nations, with a truly international feel!
St Margaret’s supports two Mission Partners - Gautam and Sabrina Money in India with the Church Mission Society (CMS).
We also support the annual Christian Aid Week appeal, as well as other appeals at Harvest, Christmas and Lent. We also have an active 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 regular visits. On one previous visit to Sweden, the parish of Kristinehamn presented St Margaret’s with an icon of Christ blessing the children. 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, which has been held at St Margaret’s a number of times.
