Welcome to St Thomas' Trowbridge and our 'family' which includes Holy Trinity (The Church on the Roundabout), St John's West Ashton and Kingfisher Church (meeting at the Mead School).
We aim to make Jesus Christ the centre of all we do and we value joyful worship, Bible teaching, the reality of God's love which the Holy Spirit brings, and a family atmosphere including all ages, backgrounds and stages of life.
St Thomas’ Church takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.

This is a difficult time for all of us and we need God’s help and strength more than ever. Although our doors have to remain shut at present, the church is still very much ‘open for business’… and more important, so is God! Here are some of the ways you can join us during ‘lockdown’.
If you would like to request prayer for yourself or a relative, or to talk to someone, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 01225 777331. Do leave a message, clearly stating your phone number, if we are unable to answer there and then.
Go to St Thomas' YouTube channel for video services, sermons and more.
We are sending out regular emails containing encouragement, news, prayer requests… and even a few ‘funnies’! Because some of the information shared is confidential, we can only send these to people we know, who have completed a Data Protection Form. For more details please contact email@example.com or 01225 777331.
We have a Facebook page and two Facebook groups. The first St Thomas' Church, Trowbridge (group) is for general news. The other, St Thomas' Church (Official) is for confidential prayer and encouragement and therefore subject to Data Protection like the emails (see above).
If you have suffered a bereavement at this time and would like to talk to someone, feel free to contact us, or go to At a Loss
Daily Hope, which is available from Sunday, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.
The national line is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044.
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said the service has been primarily set up to support isolated Britons, especially the elderly, who have been unable to take advantage of the boom in online church services.
Callers to Daily Hope will hear a special greeting from the Archbishop, before being given several options to choose from such as hymns, prayers, reflections and advice on coronavirus.
