Welcome to St. Thomas' Church, 

Ensbury Park

A family church, welcoming you, whoever you are, 

in the name of Jesus.

Message from the Vicar...

Welcome to our church website. 

St. Thomas’ Church has at its heart a desire to 

“love, listen and transform lives with Jesus” 

in Jesus we find Hope, hope in the darkness, symbolised by the light over our church front door. (see photo below)

May you know God's peace and presence with you today

Rev Canon Simon A Evans  Vicar of Ensbury Park

COVID Update

In the current situation we want to do all we can to keep people safe and for people to feel safe when they attend worship or events here.

Wearing face-coverings is now required by law at all services and events (unless you have a valid exemption).

We are providing hand-sanitiser and ask people to use it on entry to the building.

We will still be encouraging social distancing  in our seating etc.  (Households and family groups etc. can of course sit closer together)

We will also be ensuring our buildings remain well ventilated.

We are singing our hymns, worship songs and carols, but we ask that people keep their masks on while singing to reduce airborne transmission of the virus. 

We also suggest that it would be good practice to take a Lateral Flow Test before attending, (we will not, of course, be asking for evidence of this - but suggest it as good practice).

A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.
