We are delighted to be opening up our church more can we have been able to recently. St Thomas' is now open every day for private prayer. Please do come and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this ancient house of prayer. Please remember to wear a face covering while you are in the church, use the hand sanitiser provided and, if possible, check in using the NHS app.

The parish of Lydlinch is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. The Diocese of Salisbury’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
