St Thomas' is a friendly welcoming church whose desire is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our community. You can be assured of a warm welcome and great coffee! Our Sunday congregations average between 25-30 adults which means that we can maintain a family atmosphere.
Our services are a balance of traditonal and contemporary music and the liturgy is taken from Common Worship. All songs and Bible readings are displayed on a large screen which allows us to sing out our praises to God. The second and fourth Sundays in every month are services of Holy Communion, the first Sunday is a shorter Communion service and the third Sunday is a family friendly Communion service.
We often use a variety of interactive ways to enhance our worship and prayer; these are always optional and never forced upon people, although we have found that most people find such activities helpful.
Children: although we do not have a Sunday School children of all ages are welcome. We have an area where children can draw and play and percussion instruments that are often employed and enjoyed by all the congregation. We never mind a bit of noise-children are as important as adults at St Thomas'.
We also have Messy Church every other month on Tuesday afternoons from 3.30-5.30pm (please ring Gilly for information on 515077).Messy Church involves crafts, worship and a shared meal together. There is a suggested donation of £1 per person but we never turn anyone away!
Our Open-the-Book team present dramatised Bible stories in the local primary school on a fortnightly basis.
House-group: This meets fortnightly on Wednesdays at 7pm and usually takes the form of a Bible study with discussion followed by coffee/tea and cakes/cookies. The housegroup is usually held at the vicarage but occasionally moves around other houses-there is lots of laughter too!
Prayer group: meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm for reflection, intercession and time to allow the Holy Spirit to move among us.
We are a DEMENTIA FRIENDLY CHURCH: this means that we take extra care to ensure that people living with dementia, and their carers, are given special consideration. Most of our congegation have been trained as 'dementia friends'.
Churchyard: our churchyard is closed and maintained by Newcastle Borough Council. However we have a Garden of Remembrance and also a conservation area which we are in the process of developing to become a space which can be used more widely by the community. If you like outdoors and gardening then we would love you to join us!
