St Thomas’ Church has a long established commitment to supporting global mission work throughout the world, as well as in other parts of our nation.
- 10% of the money we are given as a church we give out again to support mission work beyond our parish.
- We have an active Mission Support Group which supports our mission partners through regular communication, prayer, and visits.
- As a church, we commit to praying regularly for our mission partners as part of our Sunday services.
- We encourage church members to take part in short-term mission trips, and church teams have recently gone out to Kenya, Thailand, and Moldova.
- We also have a particularly strong link with Tearfund, and hold an annual gift day in the autumn, which has raised £10k-£20K for Tearfund each year over the past decade.
- For over 25 years, St Thomas’ Church has had a strong commitment to fair trade, with an inter-church Craft Aid shop on the premises.
