Our parish covers the Eastern end of the cathedral city of Wells and the rural communities of East and West Horrington and the new community of South Horrington. We are linked with the benefices of Chewton Mendip with Emborough, Ston Easton and Litton.
Our website offers ‘snapshots’ of who we are and what we do, but there is no substitute for meeting us one Sunday, when we can say, “Welcome to St Thomas’s”.
St Thomas’s is first and foremost a Parish Church that tries to look outward to the wider Community in which it is set. You will find examples of how we seek to do this in our outreach section.
We use Common Worship for our Sunday and Weekday Services, so you could describe our worship as ‘modern traditional’. We draw our music from different sources, traditional and modern.
On most Sundays our main services are 8am Said Communion and 10am sung Parish Eucharist, on the first Sunday of each month we have a Celebrate Together service.
The Healing Ministry has always had a place at St. Thomas. During 2012 sixteen members of the church completed a diocesan course and have been commissioned to exercise this prayer ministry of healing in the main Sunday service at St. Thomas’s. This will operate during communion in the Lady Chapel, giving an opportunity for personal prayer. Two members of the team will pray with the individual and will also be available after the service. It is hoped that further times of prayer will develop in the future.
