More about St. Margaret's Episcopal Church
Our faith community was established in 1963 and reorganized in 2007. It is the only Episcopal Church in Eastern Prince William County.
We are part of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America and a part of the world wide Anglican communion – that fellowship of churches having a common heritage in the Church of England and in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury.
St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church is a church that welcomes everyone – where you can call it home, use your talents, and encounter Christ in your worship so that you can also see Christ in your daily life.
Through holy scripture, prayers, songs, Holy Communion, education, service projects, and fellowship we grow in our love and understanding of God, our relationship with Jesus Christ and our life in the Kingdom of God.
There are many opportunities for involvement here at St. Margaret’s, both as a way of getting to know people and a way of sharing your special talents and interests. We invite you to participate at the level that is appropriate for you.
