Thank you so much for your interest in coming to a worship service at St Thomas’ Church. As churches are now permitted to re-open for public worship, we want to explain the three-track approach which we feel is right for this season at St T’s.
1. Online church
– this will continue to be our main way of gathering as church during this season, and is live-streamed on our church Youtube channel every Sunday at 10am (Listen to our service
). You can catch up on previous services here on our Youtube channel
. So if you are enjoying online church at home in the comfort of your pyjamas on your sofa, then please continue to do so!
2. Public Worship
- Our church building is open for private prayer, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1-3pm, and you are very welcome to come to the building to pray at those times if you wish. In addition, we are now also re-opening the church building for limited public worship, which will normally be in the form of a short, socially distanced communion service. Because numbers are limited, pre-booking is required. Book below, on this page.
3. Household Church / Hub Groups
: Now that two households in England are permitted to meet together indoors or outdoors from 4th July, and groups of up to 6 from multiple households are permitted to meet outdoors (all with due regard for appropriate social distancing), this opens out great new possibilities for gathering on Sunday mornings. So why not meet up with some other people to share online church together?
Public Worship – what can I expect?
From Sunday 5th July, we will be offering public worship in the form of a short service at St Thomas’ Church at 11.30am, which will normally be a communion service. Because of ongoing public health ;restrictions, there will be a number of factors to consider to make this as safe and welcoming as possible:
If you would like to attend a worship service on-site at St Thomas’ Church in the next few weeks, book below. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
