Message from the Rector
Hello. My name is Ian Thompson and I have been Rector at St Margaret’s since September 2006. I am married to Jane and we have four children and an increasing number of grandchildren
After re-training I became a “vicar” in 1997, as previously I worked in industry for some 20 years doing financial administration, and during that time we lived in this area including a period on Burnage Lane, our children all attended local schools and we also attended at St Margaret's for a time before I started my ordination training
My role is not just to look after the church, but is to be available to anyone living in the parish who may need someone to talk to, or who wants to know what Christianity is all about.
Anyone can contact me just for a chat, or enquiries about weddings, funeral, baptisms or any other matters, please feel free to contact me - my details are below
Address: St Margaret’s Rectory, 250, Burnage Lane, Burnage, Manchester, M19 1FL
For general enquiries you may want to complete an online general enquiry form.
For urgent pastoral matters please telephone me on 0161 432 1844.
if I am unavailable please telephone the curate Caroline on 0161 445 8874.
Leadership at St Margaret's is a joint effort. The Curate (my deputy), is Caroline, the Wardens and Parochial Church Council (elected members) also help in the smooth running of the Church along with many other volunteers.
