Welcome To The Edgware Team!

St Margaret’s, St Andrew’s and St Peter’s: Together we are the Anglican Church for the many and diverse communities which make up modern Edgware.

We cover the area from Brockley Hill through the regeneration estates along Stonegrove in the north and west to the Broadfields estate in the east and the shops and restaurants of central Edgware in the south.

Our three churches meet in different buildings, but we share the same roots in Jesus, the same commitment to growing closer to Him and each other through our worship and weekday activities, and the same desire to engage with the needs of the local area and beyond.
