St Thomas’ Church  - keeping in touch

Building the Kingdom...................................

 

This photo shows my dedication as a Blackpool FC supporter – tangerine and white geraniums grown this year in celebration as our Club joins the Championship league.

An apology for next week – I will not be able to record Night Prayer on Monday evening (2nd August) as I will be at the Keswick Convention and the Newsletter sent out by post for Sunday 8th August may arrive late. Thank you for understanding.

Every Tuesday morning when the cleaning team work in church, once they have finished (usually around 10.30am – 11am), they pause for fellowship, read the Psalm set for that morning and pray together – if you can why don’t you do the same wherever you are – read and pray as one.
