St Thomas' Church, Woolton Hill
St Thomas' is a friendly and welcoming church here in Woolton Hill. We have a range of services including a 9.30am once a month All Together service ( the first Sunday of every month ) suitable for families. Usually there is a communion service on the second Sunday of each month with Sunday School in the church hall for school aged children (9.20am).
Sunday School is available at St. Thomas’ on the second Sunday of every month. All children of school age are welcome to join. This runs in the church hall from 9.20am and children rejoin the congregation as a group for the act of communion. In addition to our teachers, parents are requested to help occasionally on a rota basis. We look at different topics each term and explore them through stories and craft. Some of the crafts made during Sunday School and our annual Children’s Easter workshop are displayed on the Children’s notice board at the back of the church next to the toys.
A Church Youth Group for children age 9-14 meet for occasional social evenings throughout the year. Please contact Jayne Roch if you are interested in joining Sunday School or Youth Group.
If your child is restless during the service there is a selection of children's toys, books, colouring sheets and crayons available at the back of the church. Please feel free to use these facilities and return them after the service. The toilet is located at the front of the church on the left hand side (next to the kitchen).
