Church of England Diocese of Liverpool St. Thomas, Melling

St Thomas

Melling Church was founded by the monks of Cockersands Abbey, and a record exists that it was there before the year 1190.

The old Chapel was replaced in 1834 by the present building. The Church is dedicated to St Thomas and The Holy Rood.

As part of the Maghull and Melling Team our vision and purpose statements, outlined below, are underpinned by our commitment to work towards the Greatest Commandment and Great Commission:

In God:

One Team ... St Andrew, St James, St Peter, St Thomas

One Vision ... Maghull and Melling, a place of love, peace, faith, hope

One Purpose ... to fulfil the Greatest Commandment and the Great Commission

We hope to upload a Sunday Service to YouTube every week. The new link will normally replace the previous week's at some point on the Saturday: please click on 'More about this event'.
We hope you can use this link at the time you would normally go to Church, or at another time in the day. It should still be available through the week too! The planned readings can also be downloaded here (please click on 'View attachment') and there is some guidance to Romans and Matthew (taken from the Bible Society's Book Club guides to books of the bible) on the news and notices page.
