What is Pakefield Church?

We are a Christian family who worship God,
care for one another and the local community
and reach out to encourage others
to know Jesus and his love.

Pakefield Church is open every day from 9.00am to 6.00pm. You are welcome to come and meet with God, to enjoy the peace and quiet and to spend time in prayer.

In St Margaret’s chancel, there is a prayer station where you can sit or kneel and light a candle.
