Welcome to St Thomas' Church
Message from our vicar, David O'Brien
Jesus explained his purpose for every person in these words: 'I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full' John's Gospel Chapter 10 verse 10
Welcome to St Thomas' Blackpool church website. We are ordinary people who believe that God has a purpose and plan for every person. We believe this purpose is discovered through living each day in partnership with Jesus, following his teaching and committing our lives to him.
We meet on Sundays and during the week to worship God, learn from the Bible and pray together. The church is here for you and everyone, so please be assured of a warm welcome at St Thomas', we'd love to hear from you and even better see you when you visit.
Further information about the church can be found on this website together with contact details.
Thank you for your interest.
May God Bless you
Rev'd David O'Brien
St Thomas' is part of the Church of England's Blackburn Diocese with workship services in the Evangelical - New Wine Tradition.
Generally there are three services on a Sunday beginning with our 10.30 Morning Worship and 10.30 Cafe Church bible study for all ages - ideal for families with children. At 6.00 pm we have our 'spirit-led' New Wine praise service.
On Wednesdays, in term time, we have a service of Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion at 11.00 am 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.
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, then grow in their understanding of who Christ is, and how their lives can change.
Getting to know the word of God is very important. Check out our memory verse each month.
Our memory verse for December is: Isaiah 9 v 6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given and the government will be on his shoulder. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
