'St. Thomas' Children's Party' - or 'STomp' for short - is designed for families and children aged 0 to 11.  It is an informal children's church. The idea is to provide an opportunity for children and families to spend time together in church, have fun, meet new friends, learn about Jesus and the wonderful stories of the Bible and of the Church Year.   We sing simple songs with either piano or guitar accompaniment. We don't meet regularly but hold special services at festival times during the year. 

We have a STomp prayer said each time: 

"This morning God
This is Your day
I am Your child
Show me Your way"
We also STomp our feet every time and there is always a cup of tea or juice in hand with biscuits.
STomp is organised by members of the Family Worship Group.  Everyone and anyone is welcome as long as you are young at heart, although we ask that children are accompanied by an adult unless otherwise arranged in advance.  So, why not come along and STomp!

Morning Worship

The first Sunday of every month, at the usual service time of 11.15 am, is our 'all ages' service where the format is more informal than the usual eucharist and communion is not generally taken.  This service is intended to serve all members of our church, young and not so young.

Special Services

In addition to our general services, various special services are held throughout the year including Harvest Festival, Christingle, the Carol Service and the Crib Service.   The dates for these services can be found on our Church Calendar.
