Worship at St.Thomas from the 19th July 2021

Dear all,

As a church we have a duty of care to safeguard the health and wellbeing of all people who visit our church. From the 19th July 2021 we kindly ask that you will continue to wear face masks whilst inside the church.

To try to reduce the spread of the covid 19 virus further we are improving the through ventilation in church by opening all doors including the tower door and the vestry during services.

We kindly ask that you continue to use hand gel on arrival AND on departure so as not to return home with the possibility of infecting others.

Singing will be allowed by the congregation in church services, but face masks need to be worn throughout to reduce the spreading of the covid 19 virus.

The new government guidelines have removed the limit on numbers of people gathering together inside. So all the pews will be available for seating during services.  We still encourage people to continue to be mindful of the distance between their  neighbour whilst in church.

However, there will be a space provided in the first 2 rows on both sides of the church for people who wish to continue to maintain a 2 metre distance from their neighbour.

Every blessing,


The Revd Tracy Ward Vicar

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
