For forty generations, Saints Thomas has been the Island's natural centre for worship, prayer, pastoral care and cultural activities.  When Islanders celebrate the great events in civic and family life, they meet in 'the church at the heart of the Island'.  In recognition of its service to the whole Island community, Saints Thomas was created Newport Minster at Easter 2008.
