St Thomas' has a small friendly congregation. It is in a parish of 350 dwellings spread between Thurstonland and Stocksmoor plus outlying farms and cottages. Our services are varied with something for everyone. A children's church is run on 3rd and 4th Sundays during term time and, at intervals during the year there are Sunday Fundays for families. We have a thriving weekly Rainbows (the youngest of the Guide Movement) a Mothers' Union meeting monthly, a knitting group and an open community coffee morning meeting once a week. We warmly welcome vistors to all our services and events. We support local and worldwide charities and care for our own community.
