A note about the heating: We are currently awaiting an official report from the experts. Once we have this we can decide what we are going to do about it. It's very frustrating: the boiler is working, but the heat is not getting through to our pipes and radiators... Many apologies!

Saturday 24 March: St Thomas’ User Group
To show off our new toilets, water fountain and general upgrading and to discuss the potential they offer, existing and new users of the church building are invited to get together with members of our community and with other user groups.

Advance notice: AGM is on Sunday 15th April after the service

SUGGESTIONS WELCOME for fundraising ideas for the building works. Whether you know somebody who could perform a concert or event, or whether it’s something off-the-wall, please come forward! Please speak to Hannah or another member of FSG, or simply come along to the meeting after the service.


We are running out of "favourite hymns". This means that if anyone would like to suggest hymns to sing at St Thomas' in the next few weeks, please speak to Catherine. 


If you have a bit of time free on a Saturday morning, we need volunteers to help serving teas and coffees. This is to provide a welcome to the community, as well as raise money for the reordering project. Lizzie is now looking after the rota for this (Thanks, Lizzie!). Please sign up on the notice at the back of church if you can help, 10.30am-1pm Saturdays.


St Thomas' is now on Twitter! The address is @sttomsnewcastle which is the same as the website. Many thanks to Lizzie, who set it up for us, and even tweeted the Lord Mayor's service! 


Don’t forget to return your moneyboxes when they’re full! If you need a new one, please see Hannah. All funds raised go towards the reordering.


Suggestions for this website always welcome.We do our best to keep it up to date, but can't always manage it. if you'd like to help, please do speak to Catherine or to Jonathan.
