The March edition of the Church magazine is now available.
Our next Fairtrade stall will take place in the church hall after the 10.45 service on Sunday 17th February. You can make a real difference to people’s lives by buying some food or gifts. Please try and support this worthwhile cause even if you only purchase one item. If you buy any fair trade goods from our stall, rather from the supermarkets, then you are helping to support Traidcraft who reinvest their profits into the communities of their producers. You can find out more about our support of Fairtrade on our web page.
I’d encourage everyone to read Bishop Paul’s excellent Christmas message.
Everyone has questions
We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. There are ten in total and a day away. Each session covers a different question that people might have about faith. The sessions are designed to create conversation – there’s no pressure or charge; it’s just an open, informal and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.
Here are the details of our next three Alpha Courses:
We have just released a new web page which has advice on how we can be better stewards of our planet and our neighbourhood. Please visit: http://www.stthomasstluke.org.uk/ourworld/environment/ and take a look.

Maintaining and regularly improving our church building as a great location for Christians to meet and worship has a significant financial cost. In addition, there are costs associated with a number of our missions. We can only continue to do what we do through the generous support of our church members and friends.
We have just launched a new web page which explains how you can help to support St Thomas and St Luke’s churches financially. This page outlines a number of ways you can donate including our new system for accepting online donations.
