St Margaret's Church
We are a small congregation on a Sunday morning with a big village heart. Our 100 club has been running for 13 years, supported by more than 50 villagers, showing the importance the community feels for St. Margaret's. Our Harvest Festival, Christmas and Easter services are well attended, as are our Harvest Suppers and other fund-raising events. We also have compline every Tuesday evening in the church.
St. Margaret's supporters play an instrumental part in generating funds to keep the church running, as well as showing village care socially and responsibly. There are many church events that actively welcome all villagers, and Rev'd Susan is always available to discuss potential baptisms, weddings and funerals.
Church breakfasts, the distribution of Mothering Sunday flowers and cards, travelling suppers, Christmas carol singing, drinks parties and other events always welcome the wider community into the church circle. This ensures that St. Margaret's Church building is just one aspect of the life of the church within Newton village, that all are welcome and welcomed when living in the community and any financial support offered is much appreciated, but the care of the community is our top priority.
