The Church of St Margaret of Scotland, also known as St Margarets Catholic Church, is a Roman Catholic church on St Margaret’s Road in St Margarets, Twickenham, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The parish was created in 1936.[1] The church building was designed by the architect Austin Winckley and opened in 1969. In 1999 it became a Grade II listed building.[2]

The church is named after the 11th-century English Saxon princess who became Queen of Scotland when she married Malcolm III[3] and who was canonised by Pope Innocent IV in 1250.[4]

Mass is held on Saturday and Sunday evenings and every morning except on Thursdays.[5]
