July is our month to collect for Changing Lives – please donate quality clothes and toiletries.

Do you still have your talent money? Please return it to St Thomas' as soon as possible. Catherine isn't yet penniless, but it would be good to have the £10 back, plus interest to St Thomas' Building Fund. 

We are running out of "favourite hymns". This means that if anyone would like to suggest hymns to sing at St Thomas' in the next few weeks, please speak to Catherine. 

The building work has now started: the scaffolding is up, and they have begun to open up the roof. We hope they find what they expected. The work will continue for about 8 weeks. Then we have a break for the busy season of the church, and install the toilets early in the New Year. Please pray for the builders themselves, and for the Building Group as we make decisions about the building. 

Thursday 27th July: Chain of Peace meeting. 

Next discussion group is Tuesday 1st August, when we will be starting the new diocesan strategy discussion document: Growing Church, bringing hope. The first is on "Growing". All welcome. 5.30pm at 9 Chester Crescent. 

If you have a bit of time free on a Saturday morning, we need volunteers to help serving teas and coffees. This is to provide a welcome to the community, as well as raise money for the reordering project. Lizzie is now looking after the rota for this (Thanks, Lizzie!). Please sign up on the notice at the back of church if you can help, 10.30am-1pm Saturdays.


St Thomas' is now on Twitter! The address is @sttomsnewcastle which is the same as the website. Many thanks to Lizzie, who set it up for us, and even tweeted the Lord Mayor's service! 


Don’t forget to return your moneyboxes when they’re full! If you need a new one, please see Hannah. All funds raised go towards the reordering.


Suggestions for this website always welcome.We do our best to keep it up to date, but can't always manage it. if you'd like to help, please do speak to Catherine or to Jonathan.
