The Thornbury Centre Story

The site of The Thornbury Centre has been home to St. Margaret’s Church since the beginning of the 20th Century. A traditional stone building was home to the worshipping community until the late 1980’s when cracks started to appear in the chancel arch. Within a week the building was declared unsafe and the congregation was forced to move into the Sunday School building. There was little choice but to demolish the original Church building and start afresh.

With vision and commitment, the congregation of St. Margaret’s made plans to build a new Church and Community Centre and the garden of rest now stands on the site of the old vicarage.The award winning Thornbury Centre continues to be a statement of belief and hope for the future.

The story of St. Margaret’s and The Thornbury Centre is depicted in a large textile hanging in the St. Margaret’s Hall.
