St Thomas's is the kind of Anglican church commonly called Anglo-Catholic. It is an example of the initiative of a group of academics of the mid-19th century, called the Oxford Movement.
We seek to celebrate the glory of God with all the senses, including music, vestments, incense and bells, giving highest priority to the Eucharist, which is central to our worship. A plain Eucharist is celebrated every day of the week. On Sunday, Eucharist is celebrated at all three morning services: Said Eucharist, 8:00 am (Book of Common Prayer rite); Sung Eucharist, 9:30 am (contemporary rite, Book of Alternative Services, with congregational mass and choral motet); and Solemn Eucharist, 11 am (Book of Common Prayer service, with choral mass and motet). We also celebrate many other major feast days throughout the year. The service of Solemn Evensong and Devotions takes place every Sunday at 7:00 pm.
We endeavour to take exceptional care and pay attention to liturgical detail, so that the beauty of holiness is most dramatically and effectively set forth.
