St Thomas’ church is part of a group of 4 churches served by our Rector, Revd. Graham Phillips, and a small team of clergy. Each church has one or more church wardens, together with a group of volunteers who work within the church and the wider community
We invite you to share in our worship, friendship and activities. We believe that people of all ages can join in and benefit from the opportunities for Christian discipleship and fellowship made possible in this parish. We welcome the participation of children and young people as well as adults in church life.
If you are not a church-goer, or if you haven't been to church for some time, come and try it for yourself, you may be pleasantly surprised. You will certainly be joining people who feel that church gives enrichment to their lives. We assure you of a warm welcome without any prejudice.
‘During this difficult time when our church buildings are closed, we are still a church; meeting virtually for prayer services and fellowship, loving our neighbours by offering practical support to the vulnerable, and caring for our communities. With the closure of all our buildings, and some people not being able to give due to the financial impact of the pandemic on them, we cannot receive all the gifts that we usually would, so we really need your help now. If you are able to give at this time, please click on the button. Thank you.’

The Extension Roof will be repaired during the last week of January
Glyn Thomas will be busy re-tiling our Church Extension roof by the end of January. Look out for him and his team – and please pray for fine weather!
This repair is only possible due to generous donations from individuals and from grants awarded; £500 from the Millichope Foundation, £750 from the Allchurches Trust and £500 from the Garfield Weston Foundation. We are very grateful to all these contributors. We couldn't have done it without them.
Hopefully the Extension, along with the church and all the other venues in Hanwood, will soon be open for services and activities which we can enjoy together.
