St. Thomas' Church, Douglas
We are here to witness to the presence of Christ in the parish we serve, to offer faithful worship and to extend in His name a warm welcome to all.
“God is light; In him there is no darkness...”
[1 John 1:5]
Since its opening in 1849 St. Thomas' Church, which was built in the very early days of Douglas' development, has seen many changes. Douglas has grown from a small fishing port to the Island's capital. The age of mass tourism has come, and largely gone, to be followed by the growth of the finance and insurance sector, an expanding retail area and the services and facilities needed to support a constantly increasing population. As the twenty first century progresses, we are aware that further, as yet unknown, but far reaching changes are on the way. In the meantime, the roads around the church, which in the mid nineteenth century may have seen the passage of the occasional horse drawn dray or carriage, now echo to the constant roar of modern traffic!
In the midst of so much change the ministry of the church has remained the same. We are here to witness to the presence of Christ in the parish we serve, to offer faithful worship and to extend in his name a warm welcome to all. Whether you are a long standing resident, a recently arrived "comeover" or a holiday maker, you will be made very welcome and we look forward to seeing you. Our normal service pattern can be found by clicking on the services button at the top of this page. Any alterations will be published on this site in good time.
With every good wish and blessing.
