On the Sunday before Christmas the morning service  “Family Carols”are enjoyed by both regular members and visitors including family members on holiday.

The evening service is one of “Nine Lessons and Carols by Candlelight”.  The Deputy Lord Lieutenant and his wife, the Mayor and Mayoress of Barking and Councillors are invited but do not always attend. Both services often average over 200 people.

Robes are worn by Choir, Clergy and Servers at all services. It has been our tradition that the Rector wears a Cope for Civic occasions and the main services on the Patronal Festival and at the Festivals of Easter and Christmas.

St. Margaret’s is the main Civic Church for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. In May each year the newly elected Mayor and Councillors usually attend a Civic Service. The Deputy Lord Lieutenant and local M.P. also attend.

The Sermon is generally preached by the Mayor’s Chaplain (who may be a visitor).

On Remembrance Sunday the Rector leads a service with the Royal British Legion at the War Memorial in Barking Park before the “Civic Service” in Church with The Mayor, other Dignitaries and uniformed organisations. At the Job Drain VC Memorial Statue opposite the Abbey Green a service is held on the 11th November at 11.00a.m.

With the Local Authority making a significant contribution to the building of the Church Centre and the work on the Curfew Tower it is important that the Rector takes the lead in maintaining a close working relationship with the Council.
