St Thomas Norwich

We exist to be a city & county-wide expression of authentic Christianity today, a lively and passionate resource church in Norwich.

A bit more...

Church is about the people, not the building, and now more than ever we are seeing that. Our goal as a church is to love God, each other and the wider world. Our natural response to the love God has shown us is to let it spill over.

First, we are followers of Jesus. We want to serve God and make Him known. We have gatherings in person and online; opportunities to worship, pray and grow together, offering love, support and friendship to one another.

As a church we operate across multiple sites in Norwich:
Earlham Road (St Tom's Church & The Mitre Cafe)
Russell Street (St Barnabas Church & Community)
Grove Walk (St Alban's Church, The Sanctuary Coffee Stop)

What do we do for students?

We want to build a community of students absolutely in love with Jesus and eager to join in with what God is doing. Whether it's through prayer, worship, scripture, gifts... Sundays, groups, one-on-one conversations... It doesn't matter! Whatever brings you closer to God and loving Him more fully!

That love you have for God should spill out into love for His people too! During your time at university, we long for you to form real relationships with other christians who will cheer you on in your faith, pick you up when you are down, and keep you on track. That may be other students, a mentor or even wider church family. Joining a group or team is a great way to get connected and start building those friendships!

God has a heart for the least, the lost and the last, and we think the church should too! Whether that is something that excites or scares you, even if you don't know what it looks like yet, we want to help you realise your giftings, grow in them and use them to do amazing things to bring about God's kingdom. We exist to equip and encourage you to share the gospel, to fight injustice, and to care for those in need.

We also do amazing socials, a weekend away, groups, worship nights, etc. These are wonderful opportunities to gather together and be church.
