On Sunday 26 September at 10:30am we meet in partnership with our Methodist friends, celebrating our first joint service for 18 months with a Harvest Thanksgiving Communion led by Rev Eddie Sykes. It will be such a joyful occasion for both churches to worship together again and to offer thanksgiving, and we do hope that you will be able to attend. Donations and small gifts of non-perishable goods and toiletries for the Food Bank in Rosyth can be brought to church on the day.
As we are still observing 1m distancing in church, can you please let Sandra Young know by 5:00pm on Saturday 25 September if you plan to be there.
Every Sunday don’t forget to light a candle at 7.00pm, and pray together with other Christians in Scotland, using the prayer specially written by the Scottish Church Leaders Forum, which you can access from this page when it is updated (usually on Fridays).
Welcome to St Margaret’s, Rosyth. We are part of the Scottish Episcopal Church, which shares a long history of Christian worship from the beginnings of Christianity in Scotland, and which is part of the world-wide family of churches that make up the Anglican Communion. Our present church was formed in January 1996 from the congregation of St Margaret’s Anglican Church, when the Royal Navy withdrew from Rosyth and we were invited to worship in Rosyth Methodist Church, with whom we are now in a Local Ecumenical Partnership (follow the link to “Our partners”).
At St Margaret’s we are a friendly and caring congregation, and the vigour of our hymn-singing belies our small numbers, as David Chillingworth (until 2017 our Primus) commented on in his blog. We are aware that ours is a living tradition continually moving forward, and we are looking for you to join us and play a part. There is a place for everyone and we would like people of all ages to feel part of our Sunday worship. Our main form of worship is Holy Communion using the 1982 ‘Blue Book’ Scottish Liturgy, sung to a setting appropriate to the season. At other times there are meetings of groups to which our members belong. Our aim is to ensure you quickly feel at home but also find sufficient challenges to move forwards in your spiritual life.
For details of what’s on, click this link, or use the “What’s on” tab. You’ll find us in Queensferry Road at the junction with Woodside Avenue, and 5 minutes walk from Rosyth Station. More details at the “Where we are” tab. We welcome everyone: we have a loop system for your hearing aid, access for buggies and wheelchairs, disabled toilets, and large print versions of the liturgy books.
