New Group? 

Here at St Thomas’s, the majority of our groups and ministries are ‘lay-led’ – that is, they are led by normal church members, and are supported and overseen by members of the clergy and staff team.  

Many of our groups and ministries have come into being because someone in the church had a vision for a ministry or outreach which they felt God was calling them to start.  They checked it out with the church leadership, and gathered others to form a team, and then launched this new ministry.  This continues today, and if you feel God may be calling you to start a new group or ministry, please contact one of the clergy team to talk your idea through with them.  

You may find this leaflet helpful in thinking through some of what’s involved in starting a new group.
