Welcome to St Thomas's Church
St Thomas's is an encouraging community of Christians in Lancaster. We welcome enquirers and people who are just looking. We also respect the fact that not everyone may wish to stay, but we hope you will.
Our longing is to know Jesus Christ better, to see his kingdom reign and to see growth both here and in the links we have with other churches locally and overseas.
A warm welcome to any new students arriving in Lancaster in the next few weeks! We look forward to getting to know you. For more information about our student ministry check out the student page

St Thomas's News Items
9am Assistant Minister
The PCC wishes to appoint a part-time stipendiary Associate Vicar to serve as 9am Congregational Leader. However, due to complicated employment regulations preventing the appointment of stipendiary clergy to part-time posts, the PCC has been advised by the diocese that the PCC should instead create the post of part-time Assistant Minister (who can be lay or ordained). Therefore, the PCC is looking to appoint an Assistant Minister to the 9am Congregation (10 hrs a week) on a one-year basis, pending a review of the legislation.Details of the post are below. Application deadline Friday 5th December 2014, proposed start date 1st January 2015.
