St Margaret of Antioch:
a friendly parish church in the heart of Durham.
The Church is usually open on weekday mornings from May to October.
Over many centuries St Margaret’s has welcomed countless wanderers and pilgrims in the name of Christ. We have a long and proud history of community involvement and social action (in areas as diverse as healthcare, education and work with the marginalised); and many people can testify to having first encountered God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – through the mission and ministry of this church.
Today, we continue to try to live – and share – lives of faith, holiness and love, in response to God’s call:
• We seek to be inclusive: welcoming all – regardless of gender, race, age or sexual orientation – in the name of Christ.
• We are Biblical and Sacramental: with worship centred on Christ, encountered in the Eucharist, who informs and inspires us in our daily lives.
• We seek to proclaim to Good News of Christ in the world, by our words, actions, presence and prayer.
We take seriously our
responsibility for Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.
