St Margaret’s Church

St. Margaret’s, known as ‘the church on Parliament Square’, is a 12th-century church next to Westminster Abbey. It’s also sometimes called ‘the parish church of the House of Commons’.

Visiting St Margaret's

In response to the outbreak of Coronavirus in the UK, public worship and general visiting at St Margaret's church are currently suspended.

Services at St. Margaret’s should hopefully resume in the coming months.

However, you are welcome to visit us for individual prayer from 10:30am - 12.00pm, Monday - Friday.

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.
