Local Community 

As a church, our vision is to share God’s love from the heart of the city.  St Thomas’ Church has a building in a city-centre location in Lancaster, but our church members live and work in communities scattered all around north Lancashire and even beyond.  Whether we are gathered in the city centre, or dispersed to our homes and workplaces, we want to be a blessing in the name of Christ to those we meet.  

We have a number of outreach ministries to our local areas, which you will find on the menu on the right.  Some of these, such as St Thomas’ Pre-school, The Ark, Little Fishes, and Tees on the Steps are based on the church premises.  Others such as Sports, Live Simply, Lyrics and Lunch, and Heaven Sent take place in neighbourhoods and networks throughout our region.  Click on the links to find out more information
