Hello from Tracy,

I hope you all had an enjoyable Easter. Our online Easter services are still available to view on our YouTube channel, “Worship from St.Thomas” (https://bit.ly/2ynuqHq) 

Sunday 18th April is our Thanksgiving Sunday where we give thanks to the volunteering and financial contributions that have kept us going through lockdown. 

If you would like to take the opportunity to offer any volunteering help or make a financial donation for this year, then we would be most grateful.

Many of you will have already seen our Thanksgiving leaflet included in April’s Outlook – but here it is below with details of how you might like to contribute.

Best wishes,

6th January 2021

Dear friends,

May I wish you all a happy and healthy New year.

Due to the rapid increase of people testing positive with Covid19 we are starting 2021 by going into another national lockdown.

It is imperative that people’s health and well being are our priority and with that foremost in my mind I have decided that all church services will continue to be offered online via our Youtube channel – Worship from St Thomas.

10.00am Morning Prayer and 7.00pm Compline will continue Monday to Friday on

Youtube. Below is the URL link to access ‘Worship from St Thomas’


Our Sunday service will continue at 10.00am via Zoom. Please click on the link and it will take you straight there https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86792362778

The church building will be open everyday during daylight hours for private prayer.

Please do follow the current guidance re

HANDS – please use the available hand sanitiser on entering and exiting the building.

FACE – please do wear a face mask inside the building. Especially if other people are in church.

SPACE – maintain a 2 metre distance between each other inside church.

I look forward to the day when we can gather together once again in church.

Until then may God hold you close,

Who are we?

St Thomas’ Church is the parish church for Mellor and Marple Bridge. We are part of the wider Diocese of Chester which is part of The Church of England.
There have been settlements on this site since Iron Age times which offers visitors spectacular views across Stockport and Manchester and on a good day views of the Welsh Hills.

What are we about?

At the heart of any church though is the people. We would love to offer you a warm welcome when you visit us at the ‘Church on the Hill’.
We provide a breathing space where all people can come with their questions and doubts. We explore together how to live out the Christian faith in today’s world. Finding ways to see the sacred in the ordinariness of daily life.

Coming together each week to celebrate the Eucharist is an important part of our worship which is supported by our amazing choir.
We are passionate that all are valued and respected for who they are as beloved children of God and are thankful for all the gifts and talents that people offer to the life and well being of our community and the wider world.

An Open Church

St Thomas’ in Mellor and its Parish Centre is usually OPEN everyday – all are welcome to enjoy this beautiful breathing space for private prayer, rest, meditation or just a few quiet moments.

This is the local parish church and it’s for you and yours …
