CHANGES TO THE SERVICES FORMAT 

Bishop Richard’s direction is to cease meeting on Sunday for worship so we are providing resources so you can worship at home.  Click here for the current week's resources

There are also restrictions on small group meetings so we can keep each of us safe from infection.  

THESE ARE THE USUAL TIMES FOR Services of Worship:

Services held at St Thomas, Howrah, 3 Lorne Cres, Howrah each Sunday.

  • 8.30am - a friendly traditional service including Holy Communion.
  • 10am - a contemporary service for people of all ages.
  • A mid-week service is held at 10am on the second (2nd) Wednesday of each month.

Festivals and Special Occasions at St Thomas

Christmas Eve at 11pm and Christmas morning at 9am at St Thomas.  This is a different time to our regular Sunday services.  

A service is held at 9am on Good Friday (Reflection) and a celebration is held on Easter Sunday (Easter Day).

A Paschal Meal is held in the hall on the Thursday evening before Easter (this is the day of the Passover, the day of the Last Supper).

At Lent we celebrate with pancakes on Pancake Tuesday and with an early morning service on Ash Wednesday.
