Praise the Lord....Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” Psalm 150: 1,6

Music plays an important role in our services at St.Margaret's, enhancing prayer, contemplation and worship. We have a number of different musical groups and styles, which complement the different styles of service. You can find out more about these music groups below.

The bells at St.Margaret's have been calling people to worship for nearly 400 years. Our band of ringers continue this tradition for regular services, weddings and other special occasions. This page tells you more about bellringing at St.Margaret's.
