St Thomas' Musbury - Groups and Organisations
There are a number of Groups based at St Thomas'. We have listed them here. If you would like to find out more about them, please contact us.
Our branch is very active and supports the work of the MU within the diocese, nationally and internationally. We have a full range of events, talks and activities planned and always welcome new members.
Our group of teenagers meets twice a month at 5.00pm on a Sunday. Once a month is usually pizza and film night with a chat or discussion afterwards. On the other Sunday there's an activity, trip or event. The group is for anyone currently at secondary school.
We have a joint church choir with St James, Haslingden. Members help to lead Sunday morning services and other special services during the year. Singers of all ages, ranges and abilities are always welcome.
We have a dedicated team of volunteers who serve at the altar during services. Some also help to administer Holy Communion. If you would like to learn more about serving, please contact us.
You can find out more about the Refectory on its own page. Volunteers to help make, bake, serve and clear up are always welcome on the rota. The Refectory is also a great place to meet for coffee and cake, lunch and a chat with friends old and new. We also offer a 'we welcome wheels' space for parents with buggies and pushchairs.
St Thomas' has a ring of 8 bells which are rung before the Sunday morning service and for special occasions, including weddings. Bell Ringing is a very sociable activity If you've never tried it then why not think about giving it a go? We can put you in touch with someone to help you learn before you become a fully-fledged ringer at our church.
We rely on number of volunteers to help with all the jobs which need doing to keep our church, Hall, and churchyard in good repair. Cleaners, gardeners, handy-people of all kinds. If you'd like to help us out, please let us know!
Social & Fundraising
We love to get together for social events and also to raise money for charity as well as for church funds. Our Parish Lunches are really popular as well as our coffee mornings. We're proud to support 'Raft', our local foodbank, 'CLIC Sargent' children's charity, The Children's Society, MacMillan and more besides.
As a church family we are committed to sustainable living and care for the planet. One of the ways we promote and support this is with our weekly Fairtrade stall in the Church Hall during post-service coffee. We try to use Fairtrade products wherever we can in church.
Our beautiful church is made even more so thanks to a small but very dedicated team of flower arrangers. Offers of help always welcome!
