A very warm welcome to St. Thomas' Church! We are a friendly, Spirit-filled, evangelical (Bible-believing) church which is situated on the Coppy Hall Estate in Aldridge, near Walsall. Our vision statement is 'Up, In and Out' with worship, discipleship, prayer and evangelism as key aspects of the life of our church. Fellowship is also very important to us and we aim to give every new attender a really friendly and supportive experience. Our Vicar, Mark and the Ministry Team are helping us to continually grow in our ability to discern the living word of God and organise frequent visiting speakers, encouraging us to develop prophetic gifts and Spirit-filled lives. Our most recent visitor was Mark Marx, who developed the 'Healing on the Streets' healing ministry and we are aiming to continue this ourselves in the Aldridge shopping area. We have more exciting speakers coming to us this year (2019). Please do come along, we'd love to get to know YOU!
