St. Margaret's at Westminster Abbey

Good morning from London. I attended Sunday service at St. Margaret’s Church at Westminster Abbey. St. Margaret’s is the smaller church on the Abbey grounds that was built to serve lay people when Westminster Abbey was an actual Benedictine abbey. 

I arrived early, which allowed time for me to chit chat with the ushers. I mentioned that I work at a school with that is named St. Margaret's.  That piqued interest and prior to start of the service, the Verger came up to me and asked if I'd like to participate in the service by bringing up the elements at the offertory. I was happy to do so. 

I sat in a pew near the front of the church, on the left side. However, I noticed that a group of pews opposite me were reserved. I caught a glimpse of the placard on each of those pews: Reserved for Members of Parliament. There were a few MPs on hand this morning.
