St Margaret’s pupils on their visit to Bridge Chapel

Bridge Chapel describes itself as a big family. It is a free church, founded in 1980 to provide a place where anyone can feel welcome and worship God. It is not attached to any denomination. The chapel’s aim can be summed up by the letters GEM which stand for 'Glorify God, Encourage Christians and Make More Christians'.

Pupils from St Margaret’s High School found that Bridge Chapel is active in the local community, providing training courses and support groups for people of all ages and abilities. It also operates a community café.

Jodie is a member of Bridge Chapel. She has a rare skin disorder and has set up a charity called ‘Caring Matters Now’ for young people with the same condition. It was the support of the Bridge Chapel members that helped her get through over 30 operations.
