    Not at all! We will be welcoming, and you will not be forced to do anything you are not comfortable doing, in fact, you don't have to do anything at all. Just come and be yourself. We want you to feel right at home and enjoy your church experience. We are an inclusive community and you are welcome.

  • What happens for the kids at church?
    We have a fantastic programme for the kids at church. Children stay with parents for the first part of the meeting and then our host will make it clear where and when our various children’s programmes are starting. Children can expect to have fun playing games, and learning about God in a relavant way.
  • Is St. Thomas' Centre accessible?
    Yes. There are no steps or stairs from the street into our main meeting area, there are plenty of accessible small meeting rooms and there are accessible toilets available on the ground floor too.
