About us

St Thomas’ is part of Salisbury Diocese in the Church of England, but above all we aim to be a ‘Christ Focussed, Community Facing, Church Family’.  This website will tell you more about who we are and what we do.  We hope that whoever you are and whatever stage of life you are at, you will find a welcome here.  Our Annual Report gives a much fuller description of St Thomas’ Parish and its life.

St Thomas’ Parish serves three separate areas of Trowbridge, with a focal point in each:

Area

Focal point

St Thomas’ Road/The Down

St Thomas’ Church – our main worship venue

Paxcroft Mead/Castlemead

Kingfisher Church (meets at The Mead School)

Bradford Road/Broadmead

Holy Trinity – ‘The Church on the Roundabout’

St Thomas’ also shares its vicar and ministerial team with St John’s, West Ashton.

We are extremely grateful to have received a £20k grant in 2020 from English Heritage for necessary repairs to our Bapistry roof.  We are also very grateful to have received a £2.5k coronavirus response and recovery grant from the Wiltshire Community Foundation towards the costs of providing space for community use, and a £1.5k grant from the All Churches Trust towards the refurbishment of the toilets at Holy Trinity.
