St Thomas News - 23rd October 2020

Dear Church,

Thanks for the positive feedback about the all age service last week. We will do another one before Christmas! This Sunday we are beginning a series looking at the Book of Ezra as we think about 'returning from exile'. Do have a read of Ezra chapters 1 and 2 if you get a chance. The service is at 10.30am - join us on Zoom (631 970 6882), Facebook and YouTube

St Thomas News - 18th October 2020

Dear Church,

This Sunday we are experimenting with an All Age service online! For those families who are receiving 'church in a bag', the livestream service will be part of the activities for this week - we'll be looking at the book of Ruth. A few things about the service:
- If you don't get 'church in a bag', you may want to have a leaf to hand for the prayer activity which Charlotte will be leading.
- We hope to have actions from Joel and Lois, so we won't have words on screen. The three action songs will be: All Through History; Because of God's Great Love; and I Give Thanks.

St Thomas AGM 15th November 2020


On 15th November we will have a different kind of service, with people sharing on Zoom about the different ministries and things God has been doing among us. This will be followed by our AGM - unfortunately this can now only be accessed via Zoom as we'll not be permitted to have people in the church building. The Annual Report (for 2019!) is here - let me know if you need a printed copy and please do have a read!

St Thomas News 25th August 2020

Dear Church,

This Sunday we'll again have our livestreamed service at 10.30am on Zoom (631 970 6882), Facebook and YouTube. I'll be speaking this week about Zechariah 4.6-10, and not despising the day of small things. Please join us if you can!

Later in the day, we will have a communion service in church at 4pm. In October we may well move to a midweek time for this service in preparation for darker evenings as we move towards winter.

In terms of our midweek activities in the buildings, we are of course trying to keep abreast of changing guidelines. If you'd like to know more, please get in touch. As and when we get into a proper pattern, I'll get the word out! The prayer meeting at 9am on Tuesday on Zoom is continuing.
Please don't hesitate to call, text or email if you are in need of anything.

There is a new Verse of the Week - the parable of the mustard seed from Matthew 13 - about which I've recorded a short video, so do take a look if you'd like to.

St Thomas News 14th August 2020

Dear Church,

This will be the last email from me for a couple of weeks, as we're about to go away. In the meantime, we continue to have live online services on Sundays at 10.30am. Follow on Facebook or Youtube, or join the Zoom call (ID 631 970 6882). Over the next three Sundays, there will be talks from Ed Mezzetti, Sam Nunes and Abi Federovsky, so lots to look forward to!

Coming up are the final two weeks of the Hope Holiday Club - don't forget to join in on Facebook if your family is involved, premiering each Sunday at 4pm. Do also get in touch with Charlotte with thoughts and ideas about kids' activities as we move into the new school term.
