To all attendees of worship at St Thomas 

 

We have received instruction from the Diocese that requires all who attend St Thomas for Sunday Services, to wear a suitable face covering. This requirement remains in place until future notification. 

 

A face covering is not necessarily a purpose purchased mask ,it may comprise a scarf, a buff or a bandana. Requirements are that it must securely fit around the side of the face and cover both the nose and mouth. 

 

May we please emphasise that although this instruction is handed on by the Diocese, it is now a Legal and Lawful requirement in England that is compulsory for all unless, as stated, there are medical exemptions. 

 

Our Sunday Service for the foreseeable future will be Holy Communion at 9 am. Numbers will be limited to 30 people in the building during the service, so please do let us know if you intend to come. We will be taking names as part of the Track and Trace protocol. 

 

We ask all who attend to please respect our Church Health and Safety Policy that is intended to keep all as safe and well as possible. 

 

Please use common sense at all times 

Please hand sanitise with the available hand sanitiser 

Please respect the ‘no access’ restrictions.

Covid 19 has not gone away, it is as dangerous now as ever it was, please keep yourself safe and play your part in keeping others safe too. 

 

Finally if you are in any doubt that your Health may be compromised if you do attend ,

EasterPilgrim: The Lord's Prayer

A 40-day journey through the prayer Jesus taught his followers - one which continues to shape the lives of Christians across the world.

Each day provides you with a short Bible reflection, an invitation to pray and a suggestion for responding to the vision of the Lord's Prayer itself.

We are inviting the whole Church to take 40 days this Easter season to explore this prayer in still deeper ways. Take time each day to be still, to offer to God the pain and suffering around us and within us, to reflect on each line of the prayer and to pray with others across the world the words our risen Lord has taught us. 

This will be an Easter season like no other as the world endures the coronavirus pandemic. Each day we will pray the familiar words: Our Father, give us this day our daily bread, forgive us, deliver us from evil. We will pray them with a new and ever deeper understanding.

July 2019

At the clergy conference this year, John Barclay gave three very interesting and challenging talks on “Paul and the gift“. We have posted them on the website and would encourage you to listen. Each talk is quite long – an hour – and you will need to have your bible as you listen! There is a lot to get your head around, but they will repay the effort of listening and reflecting. Enjoy!
