St Thomas behind the trees

After recent views of the back of St Thomas the Apostle, I thought I'd show you the front view.

Alas it is not easy to see behind the trees.

St Thomas the Apostle stands on Lumn Road with its sides on Tinker's Passage and Leigh Street. It was built in 1868 at a cost of £3,000 and the church was consecrated on Wednesday, September 23rd 1868. The first vicar was the Rev. A. Read who was appointed by the crown on October 9th 1846, the same year that the ecclesiastical district of St. Thomas was founded.

With an increasingly elderly congregation there is a need to find others to share the building and to find additional uses for it if it is to remain a place for Anglo Catholic worship within the Church of England.

Check out the church website for more information.

A post-Autumn view of the front of the church can be seen on Hyde Cheshire whilst the original coloured version of my photograph above can be seen on Geograph.
