  • General Information

    St.Margaret's ChurchIn Halstead for nearly 1000 years !
    Open every day !
    Available for all !

    T
    here has been a church in Halstead for a thousand years and on first seeing this picturesque building one could be forgiven for thinking it to be very old as it was built in 13th century style of knapped flint and red brick under a long sloping roof. However, the present church building was actually built in the 1870's in the grounds of the old cemetery and the old chapel now forms the chancel of the church. The building also contains two windows and some monuments from an older church which was demolished in 1880. Displayed on the wall of the North Room is the Millennium Mosaic depicting the village and all the activities associated with village life. There is also a board on the north wall of the church listing all the Rectors back to the 12th Century.

    Stained Glass window in the ChurchVillagers and visitors are always pleased to find the church door unlocked and many comment on the special atmosphere they feel in the building as they spend time in private contemplation. The churchyard also has it's fair share of admirers who enjoy strolling around the paths or incorporate it in their longer walk around  the village. One wonders how the church in Halstead will develop in the next thousand years.

    If anyone is unable to attend church but still wishes to donate on a regular basis then there is the blue envelope scheme which makes it easy to do this. You will be given these envelopes, which have weekly dates printed on them, along with a number (which represents you), so there is no form filling to do each time.

    You then drop this envelope off either

    • at the Rectory (through the letterbox) or
    • in the safe at the safe at the back of the church, or
    • with any of the churchwardens.
