St Thomas's Guild and Appeal Launch takes place on Sunday 14th January, beginning with Parish Communion at the earlier time of 9:30am.

The launch starts at 12.30 pm with canapés and drinks and will include presentations from a leading historian, specialist conservators and our own Appeal and Guild team.  There will also be musical and literary accompaniment.

What is the Appeal for?

The Appeal aims to raise money to restore and improve St Thomas's church building so that it can better carry out both its church and community work.

The money will be used to:

  1. Repair the clerestory windows
  2. Restore the famous Doom Painting, the nave ceiling, the Lady Chapel and other parts of the building
  3. Replace the pews in the nave with moveable benches and chairs
  4. Provide new toilets for worshippers and visitors


We must start our fund-raising in-house amongst our own members, so that we can then get support from other charitable trusts. An events co-ordinating group is planning a busy programme of festivals, concerts and other activities to create interest in the project and to raise money for it. Members of the committee are:
