The Parish Church of St.Thomas, Mellor – known by locals as “The Church on the Hill” has been shut since late March with no daily visitors or church services. However this doesn't mean daily worship from St.Thomas has ceased - by no means - it’s just taking a different form!
The Vicar of St.Thomas, Tracy Ward, will be leading daily prayers online from the vicarage at 10am and 7pm each day. So you will be able to join her in your own homes – much as the early Christians did before our churches were built.
If you would like to join her, and have a computer or smartphone, you can subscribe to the Worship from St.Thomas YouTube channel by clicking on the link or the image below:
Click "Subscribe" and you will enter the site (there is no charge) where you will be able to join in with her live prayers and view previous ones.
St Thomas has a daily podcast on Soundcloud. These daily podcasts from members of St.Thomas’ congregation hope to give a variety of stimulating and devotional thoughts aimed at widening and deepening faith.
There is also a monthly magazine, OUTLOOK which, during the lockdown is available online.
