The Parish of St. Thomas the Apostle is a thriving, living focus of community life within Elson and Hardway: an Inclusive, Family-Friendly Church that seeks to meet with God in his Holy Word and Blessed Sacraments.

Here, a warm welcome awaits you if you join us and share in God's Holy Sacraments and the Good News that he promises to each and every one of us.

The Parish Church has been a visible witness to the love of Christ since 1846, and as Gosport has grown up around and enveloped the small village of Elson, so the parish and its people have adapted and continued to proclaim the Kingdom of God with vigour and with friendly love.

Come and join us in worship and in fellowship and see what the love of Christ can do for you. Be fed at his Holy Table and enriched by his Holy Word, and discover the difference that the living faith can make to you. Whether you are nine, twenty-nine or ninety, St Thomas the Apostle welcomes you and can find a sacred space for you to encounter God.

We are members of Inclusive Church, Affirming Catholicism and supporters of Changing Attitude. We seek to share the inclusive love of God with all who seek Him, in a distinctively Anglocatholic ('high church') Tradition.
