Community Garden

We have recently opened our very own community garden. The beds have taken shape over the spring and summer and we’ve seen bumper crops of potatoes, cabbages, beans, peas and tomatoes. Open to gardeners of all ages and abilities we’d love to see you there on a Wednesday morning from 11.30am or a Sunday afternoon from 2pm. 

Serving on Sundays

Whether you've been coming to St Thomas with St Stephen for 40 years or this is your first week there are many different ways to get involved in serving on a Sunday. For our Sunday services we have an everyone in it together approach. Whatever your skills and passions there is somewhere for you to get involved. This might be serving coffee, helping with creche or sunday school, playing in the band, welcoming, reading the Bible passages, being involved on the sound desk or the projection. Please speak to a member of the congregation about where you can get involved.
