Our church is open daily, feel free to visit for quiet reflection or pray and perhaps leave a message in our visitors book, it is nice to know someone has taken the time to come in.  An information brochure is available in church so pick one up during your visit and take it home with you as a reminder of your time with us. 

***We are pleased to say that the little owls have reappeared in the churchyard and nearby trees, a comical bird and one to look out for. His call is quite loud and consistent for such a small bird but once seen you will want to look out for it again. It can be seen sitting on head stones in the day time.  To date the owls remain with us.

  • Christmas Eve Communion  - 10.00p.m. everyone is welcome.  Please note there is no service in our church on Christmas day
  • Heating updated-  our past blighted by the cold, by installing two wood burning stoves, St Thomas' has become a haven of warmth. We can now concentrate on what is going on in church instead of shivering. A talking point and cementing a bond within the congregation, enthusiasm for worship and mission is having positive results with encouragement from our clergy and so, work which goes into lighting and maintaining performance of the stoves, must be applauded.  "Thank You". (February 2015 electricity quarter down by £250 from same quarter in 2014)
  • This dream project came to fruition thanks to full funding for the stoves from the GLASSMORE WIND TURBINE COMMITTEE and to "ASPECT FIRES" Whittlesey for the installation.  The generosity of PARISHIONERS for their time, labour, knowledge and finance during the extensive job of setting down the fire hearths, (self financed) greatly reduced our costs. Thank you for what you have achieved in enhancing an already beautiful building but in true keeping with its Victorian status.     

The scheme throughout 2015 still continues to

(a) drastically reduced our energy bills

(b) reduced our carbon footprint, so protecting the environment

(c) provided the church with a more ambient temperature

(d) encouraged greater use of the building

(e) bring the community together - (it's difficult getting people to go home now it is so warm but beneficial, people talk more and know each other better.  Lovely atmosphere just what God ordered.)

(f) will prolong its life for the future i.e. through use and protecting the building - (There's much being discussed in the boardroom).

Thank you to those who have given wood, it is much appreciated.  We welcome any surplus wood i.e. carpentry/manufacturing off cuts, (no MDF or chipboard) sawn off tree branches etc. we are happy to collect,  make contact via our email address below.   

 Keep posted for further up-to-date on coming events for 2016.
