Hello and welcome to St Thomas Church, Mellor.

It’s been a difficult year buts it’s also been a creative year here at St Thomas’. We have all learned new skills in order to be able to worship together differently.

Many blessings, Revd Trac

The 50 days from Easter to Pentecost are a unique period in the history of the Christian faith. ‘The Lord is Risen! takes us on a journey through Luke that strengthens, challenges, deepens and renews our Christian discipleship.

‘In this vivid retelling of Luke’s story, the reader starts to see these encounters as a pattern for their own encounters with the risen Christ’ writes Dr Bridget Nichols, Lay Chaplain to the Bishop of Ely.

Revd Tracy Ward is inviting you to a Zoom meeting to informally explore together the life changing event of the resurrection and its impact on those first disciples and their world. Together we will share how we can relate their experience with our own today.

Topic: Bible Study- ‘The Lord Is Risen’ based on Luke 24

Time: This is a recurring meeting on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm starting the 5th May 2021.

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 …
