A Message From Father Ben

Fr. Benjamin E K Speare-Hardy II

Welcome to St. Margaretís Episcopal Church.   We would be delighted to have you seek God with us and to join us in the worship and service of this great Parish in the city of Trotwood. St. Margaretís is a house of prayer for all people and we welcome all.

Please join us on Sunday! Once you've entered our parking lot, come into the fully accessible building through the glass double doors, where you will be met by one of our greeters just inside and then look for an usher to direct you to the service or a Sunday School class, depending on the time of day. To be contacted by a clergy or staff person, return a visitor card from the pew.


  • Those who attend regularly usually fall into one of the following categories:

Confirmed Communicants

  • Baptized persons who have been confirmed in, or received into, the Episcopal Church either by confirmation, reception, or letter of transfer from another Episcopal Church.

Baptized Members

  • All baptized persons, of any age (including children), whose names are enrolled either by baptism, letter of transfer, or personal request. Adults can have their names enrolled as Baptized Members, but still not be Confirmed Communicants.


  • Persons who are active in the life of this congregation (through worship, giving or program participation), but their official membership remains elsewhere.


  • Persons who are visiting our church and have not decided whether to become a Confirmed or Baptized member.
