Proclaiming the love of Jesus in the community.

A message from our Churchwardens

The Churchwardens David Bennett and Joy Swarbrick, and the congregation of St Thomas's extend a warm welcome to everyone. We are currently in vacancy and going through the process of looking for our next vicar. Please get in touch if you require any further information about church services or events.

Our lady chapel is open daily from approximately 11.00 to 17.00. If you want a quiet space in this busy world please feel free to drop in and pause for a few moments or longer. You will find the entrance along the Clifton Drive side of the building.

A prayer for our church during the vacancy

Heavenly Father, we hold before you all who live and work in our Parish and all who gather to worship you at St Thomas's. Lord Jesus, we know you have plans for our parish and we trust that those plans are good. Wise and Holy Spirit, guide those who are seeking the right priest to be our next vicar, and those who are seeking the right next step in their ministry. Together may we discern your way for the future and be further equipped to grow your kingdom in this place. Amen.
