St Thomas The Apostle Groombridge

A very warm welcome to St Thomas the Apostle, the parish church of the village of Groombridge in the beautiful High Weald of East Sussex. We seek to be an open, inclusive and welcoming church for people of all ages and backgrounds. The church building is open every day as a contemplative place for prayer and reflection.

On Sundays we meet at 9.30 am for our main time of worship as we celebrate God's presence in word and sacrament, in silence and in song There are groups on Sunday for children and young people. And through the week there are a range of home groups and more informal gatherings for prayer, worship and fellowship, including a regular meditation group.

Whether this is your first visit, or you have been coming here for many years, you are very welcome in this place.

Our main gathering for worship each Sunday.

Our style of worship can best be described as structured but with loose edges. Each week we feature Bible readings, a sermon or address, and celebrate Holy Communion. On the first Sunday of each month we seek particularly to include children and young families in our worship.
