Sadly, for the second year we are not able to hold social functions to raise money for this worthy charity due to Covid restrictions.

However, during Christian Aid Week we are offering to deliver hot lunches, snacks etc on 2 or  3 week days. On both Sundays we will deliver teatime boxes during the afternoon.

It will be necessary to order your meals in advance by contacting Mary on (864217).

We will make a nominal charge but invite you to add a donation to Christian Aid. CLICK HERE to donate online

The Christian Aid Charity is the official relief & development agency of all churches in the UK & Ireland bringing relief for our brothers & sisters world wide of all faiths or none. Their work involves working with local partners and communities to fight injustice, supporting long term development projects, responding to humanitarian emergencies and campaigning for change. They are supporting those countries suffering most severely from the effects of climate change.

We hope you will enjoy some home cooked food delivered to your door while helping our neighbours in some of the poorest countries to survive.

Please contact Mary by the beginning of May and we will contact you regarding delivery arrangements.

If you don’t require a meal but would like to support Christian Aid, donations can be given to Rev. Sharon, the Church Wardens or CLICK HERE to donate online.

HRH Prince Philip

With the sad news of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh it is anticipated that an online Book of Condolence will be opened by Buckingham Palace at, to which parishioners are directed. 

Neither the Parish Council nor St Thomas’s Church are able to open a physical book of condolence, or to provide a location for floral tributes, and instead suggest a charitable donation. The Duke of Cambridge has recently launched an urgent appeal on behalf of the National Emergencies Trust so that the Trust can help local charities, distribute money and support victims in combatting the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Further information is available at

St Thomas’s Church is, of course, open for private prayer and the lighting of a candle.
Our thoughts and prayers are with members of the Royal Family.
