St Thomas 125 – Celebrate with us
This year we are celebrating 125 years since the church was built and opened. We have a number of events planned, especially on Sunday May 14th we the first sod was cut all those years ago in 1892. See the events page for full details – some more events will be added (update – January 13th)
Family Service at 10am on the third Sunday of the month (only half an hour) , plus particularly child-friendly occasions to be found on the relevant web page (see Services)
Opening Times: St Thomas is sadly only open during service times.
Parking. Unfortunately we have no car park and therefore parking is along adjacent roads. Parking along Rock Terrance or on the south side of the church at least affords level access. We have one small step to gain access on foot to the church on both west and south sides.
Building and other Projects: At St Thomas’ we have now had a complete re-mortaring of the west end and south side of the church. Now we are looking at our entrance area, to make it more welcoming. We have now replaced our inner wooden doors with glazed doors and repainted the outer doors a warmer, brighter colour. We now have all red chairs (the wooden ones have gone) and also an extension is planned to our heating system to heat our rooms for hire (vestry kitchen and above) – this will be done in two phases – downstairs and then upstairs, and will include the loos. The north wall of the church is currently being replastered and painted.
St Thomas charges £10 per session only (morning, afternoon or evening) for use of its adjoining hall. This includes heating. Sadly we do not do one-off bookings/parties etc. as we have no caretaker, but regular bookings will be most welcome
At present we have space for regular hire on Monday mornings, Wednesday morning and afternoon, Thursday evening, Friday morning and afternoon
