St Thomas’, also known as St Thomas Meeting House, serves both as a church and as a community centre. Depending on the circumstances the sanctuary can be partitioned off, allowing the space to be used for other activities; from fitness classes, to music rehearsals or meetings.
The building was opened and dedicated in June 1988, but it traces its origins to the beginning of the previous decade when a Christian presence was established at Enfield Close to serve the communities of Houghton Hamlets, Parkside, and Brookfield.
St Thomas' can accommodate about 60 people. It also includes a spacious kitchen, disabled facilities, central heating, and 11 parking spaces. Regular, long-term hiring is available. For enquires about hiring St Thomas’ please contact the Parish Office or complete the form on this page.
