Financial Support for St Thomas's Church

As you will be aware St. Thomas' main source of income is the giving of the congregation. Since the church building closed those who give by directly putting money on the plate have largely been unable to do so.

If you would like to support St. Thomas' either by setting up a monthly standing order or by simply transferring the amount you wish to give electronically, please feel free to contact the vicar and you will be sent the necessary details.

It is possible to give in this way and claim Gift Aid on it.

Please ask for details if you wish to do so.

Thought for the week

Our Licensed Lay Minister Elizabeth O'Connor has been supplying short meditations each week, available on our Downloads page.

Prayer Trail

There is now a prayer trail around the churchyard. This is described in the May edition of No Doubt, available for download from our Magazine page. The prayer cards will be changed on a regular basis.

Re-opening letter 2020-07-02
A message from Liz Stone, Christian Aid Area Organiser for Lytham St Anne's

Christian Aid Week this year, in spite of circumstances, was very successful. CAW itself raised approximately £3.1 million and the total including the Coronavirus Emergency appeal was about £4 million. So, in spite of all the bad news around us, we have something to say a big Thank You for in our prayers. There may be a(nother) Christian Aid Week of some kind later in autumn but it would not involve house-to-house collections. I'll keep you posted if and when I have any further news.

I will praise God’s name in song
and glorify him with thanksgiving.

Psalm 69:30
