St Mary's Thornthwaite

Welcome to our church.

We meet in three locations around the parish.

St. Herbert's Braithwaite, St. Mary's, Thornthwaite and Newlands Church are, together, often known as 'TBN' (Thornthwaite, Braithwaite and Newlands). The church usually meets every 2nd & 3rd Sunday at 10:00 am and every 1st & 4th Sunday at 9:00. There is no service on the fifth Sunday of the month. Changes to this pattern are advertised locally.

Regular services are held at St Herbert's Church Braithwaite or St Mary's Church Thornthwaite. Newlands hosts services four times a year, with dates advertised locally.
