The future of St Margaret’s

The Dean and Chapter of Westminster is committed to developing the Abbey’s mission and ministry through St Margaret’s unique location as ‘the Church on Parliament Square’. Alongside the pattern of regular worship, St Margaret’s will focus on service to Parliament and public life more broadly - both as a place of worship and as a centre of engagement - as well as social and community programmes and Christian formation.
