There has been a church of St Thomas of Canterbury in Brentwood since the 13th century, and we are very much at the heart of the community.

St Thomas' is an Anglo-Catholic church. We place great importance on welcoming visitors, teaching the Catholic faith in its totality, and eucharist-centred worship. The Church Centre is open most days from 9am to 3pm, serving tea and coffee. During this time the church is open and there is usually someone available to talk to.

Please visit our website for more information. You are warmly welcome to come to any of our services, or to call in and see the church whenever it is open.
