I’m New! What should I expect?

What are our Services like?

Our services run for about an hour. They are centred around the reading of the Bible and a talk on the passage. There is also a mixture of modern songs, hymns and prayers. After each of our services there is time to have tea and coffee and to get to know one another.

Which Service is right for me?

All of our services have the same bible reading and talk each week but vary slightly in style. If tradition is your thing, you might feel at home at our 9:00am and 6:00pm services.  If you prefer an informal style, you might be more comfortable at the 10:30am service.  

Are facilities available for Children?

Yes! At our 10:30 service there is a fantastic programme for children and young people from age 0 through to 18! Our children’s groups are known as The Lighthouse and our youth group: The Grid.  Contact Jamie to find out more.

What should I wear or do?

You will receive a very warm welcome, particularly from the Welcome Team, who will be able to direct you to where you need to go. Please just be yourself and come dressed in your ‘normal’ clothes. You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.

Families @ 4

Our Families @ 4 service is for those who like a relaxed atmosphere for the whole family. The service takes place at St Thomas’s at 4:00pm on the third Sunday of each month. There’s a craft activity, a time of singing and learning together, followed by drinks and cake.
