About Us

We love to welcome people to our parish church of St Thomas’. Whether you are exploring the meaning of life, seeking peace and quiet, needing prayer or other support, or want to go deeper in your faith we are here to serve you. We are Christians of all ages who experience the love of Jesus Christ and his saving grace and are blessed with God answering prayers, and promise to live this out in serving others and helping others to also know Jesus. 

We believe that the bible is the inspired word of God and can speak into our lives today. We also believe that God sends His Holy Spirit to us, to guide and strengthen us, and equip us with the gifts we need in bringing God's Kingdom to earth. We would love to share this with you and we assure you of a warm welcome.
