St Margaret's Church
The Church of England church serving Horsmonden
Jesus is at the centre of life at St. Margaret's, and our teaching is based on The Bible. They try to be open to the Holy Spirit being an evangelical church within the Church of England. Members range in age from a few months to the mid 90s. St. Margaret's has an active junior church and several house groups meet 'mid-week'. We gather regularly for prayer.
Three times a month, in term time, we hold our 10.30am Service in Horsmonden School. The school is in the heart of the village.
If you are in the vicinity, please do visit us, whether it is just to look around a well preserved Church building with plenty of history, to admire the splendid views from the Churchyard or to join with the Christian family for a Service of Worship.
St Margaret's is a 14th Century building and is covered from an historical perspective in the Museum section.
