St Margaret’s is a haven of peace in bustling Putney. A space to reflect and meet God. To connect with others, celebrate life and find support when we need it most. To grow strong bonds with our local community and make positive change.
Our services and music are rooted in the traditions of the Church of England. We want church to be inclusive, thought-provoking and fun, and we strive to make God’s Word relevant and connected to everyday life. Children fully participate in Sunday Mornings, with weekly Sunday School and regular all-age services to energise and encourage their spiritual growth.
Whether you want to feel part of something bigger or need a quiet moment to yourself, there’s a warm welcome waiting for you, here at the heart of your community.
St Margaret’s Putney - Reflect. Connect. Grow.

The building was originally constructed around 1859 as the Grove Chapel, and was used for Nonconformist worship. In 1912 the building was donated to the parish of Putney and became St. Margaret's Church. At this time the building was cruciform in plan, with a nave, short polygonal transepts and a bell tower at the south west corner supporting a slated spire. The West door was approached by a series of rising steps with further steps descending into the church.
In 1925 the church was extended to the east, with the introduction of two further transepts each set behind an arcade of two arches, a chancel, and an apsidal sanctuary with a Lady Chapel to its south. Around the same date the steps were removed from the west end, to leave a level entrance, and a large west porch was constructed. The architects for all of this work are believed to have been the practice of Forsythe and Maule. More recently a vestry was constructed against the north side of the chancel.
