Welcome

A message from Rev David Nixon, Rector of St Thomas about the Coronavirus pandemic

The staff team are working with the whole congregation to enable parishioners to keep in touch with each other by phone, and by email or other social media. We are sending out the pewsheet weekly by post with other prayer resources. There is a lot on this website to look at especially in the St Thomas Blog.

In the wider community, we have joined together with local ministers from St Thomas Methodist Church, St Thomas Baptist Church, and Riverside, and with many other local representatives. It is likely our particular focus will be a Community Larder.

IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS (COVID19) INFORMATION from St Thomas The Apostle Church and The Church of England



In line with national guidance, St Thomas church services and midweek worship and activities will no longer be held for the time being.
