The Church continues to be alive and active, and is now OPEN for Eucharist service each Wednesday at 11:30am
The church continues to be open for private prayer each Thursday to Saturday 11am to 2pm and each Sunday Noon to 3pm.
Please observe hygiene controls, use the hand sanitiser (provided) and please follow the direction of our volunteers. In order to keep the church clean of the virus, we will be using a different section of the church each day. Heritage visitors are asked to be patient and to save their visit until we are fully open.
You can still join others online for prayer and worship, details can be found here. Worship at St Thomas’ also continues online. Email us for an invitation to join in the Zoom Meeting or watch on Facebook Live every Sunday at 10:30am. We have an active Facebook page and group supporting one another online.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength ... Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.

Thanks for stopping by. We’re glad you’re here and hope to see you at one of our worship services or fundraising events. Our services aren’t just something we attend or do and we aren’t just a building or an event. We are a people, a community and a family and you are most welcome to join us at any time.
We are St Thomas' in the Parish of Stourbridge and the Diocese of Worcester. As Christians we're all about one life - the life of Jesus, the Son of God. The Bible teaches that Jesus was God Himself, come to live in His world as a human to fix the broken relationship with our Creator. Perhaps you've never thought about it very much, but the life of Jesus has a tremendous impact upon you from a very early age.
It doesn't matter how you have ended up on our page, as we said we're glad you're here and we're happy to help and support you in any way we can.
