St. Thomas's may be only a small, modern church – nothing grand, or medieval, or ornate, but it belongs to Camber. It is loved, and has been loved for over 50 years now, as was the simple mission church that preceded it. The church is not only a building, it is most importantly the people who belong to it, the followers of Jesus Christ. Through them the Church reaches out to everyone in the community of Camber in a variety of ways to reflect the light and hope of Jesus Christ throughout the community of Camber, to both young and old, and all those in between!
