St Thomas Church is a beautiful building of historical interest as well as its main function as a place of worship. The church is open to visitors every Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from April to the end of September; quite a lot of Mondays between 10.30 a.m. and noon and most Thursdays between 6.30 and 8 p.m.
You are welcome to join us for our services, which are held at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday. There is a family parade service on the second Sunday of the month during term time which is preceded by an 8.30 a.m. said communion service. Please see the page on 'Services' for more details. Our Church is blessed with a warm and welcoming congregation, and all age groups are represented. We also have a thriving Sunday School which runs alongside the 10:30 service.
The Church is at the heart of Moorside and is a focus for the community, and many former residents want to bring their children back for baptism and hold their weddings in our church, even if they no longer live in Moorside.
As well as attending services, many of our members help to organise and take part in various formal and social events hosted by the Church. We are also fortunate to have a modern Church Hall which hosts activities such as children's parties, slimming groups, historical groups, training courses, meetings etc. and is available for hire for those interested in hosting almost any event.
All of the activities directly or indirectly associated with the Church always look forward to welcoming any new members of their groups. Take a look at our Activities page and perhaps you'll find something there that appeals or is of interest.
Our faith can be a great comfort, particularly at the more stressful times in all our lives. If after reading these pages anyone would like to discuss our belief in God further, do please contact us. We would sincerely welcome the opportunity to help in any way.
