Welcome to St Thomas' Church

Our February memory verse is Ephesians 2: 8-9

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; not by works, so that no one can boast.

Thank you for visiting our website!

St Thomas’ is part of the Church of England’s Blackburn Diocese with worship services in the Evangelical - New Wine tradition.  

Generally, there are three services on a Sunday, beginning with our 10.30am Morning Worship, and 

10.30 Café Church bible study for All Ages - ideal for families with children.  

At 6pm we have our 'Spirit-led' New Wine/School of the Holy Spirit praise service. 

On Wednesdays, in term time, we have a service of Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion at 11am followed by a 2-course lunch in our Parish Centre for a suggested £2 donation.

 

Together, we are sharing God's love and building the kingdom in the Parish of St Thomas' Blackpool, across Lancashire, the United Kingdom and abroad.

 

Located on the corner of Devonshire Road and Caunce Street, St Thomas' is right in the heart of the community.  There is usually something happening seven days a week, including services, groups for children and young people, courses, fellowship groups, prayer meetings and much more.

 

  • We exist to help people know, live and share Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that a person can have a personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • It is our joy to help people discover that relationship, and then grow in their understanding of who Christ is, and how their lives can change.
