Parish Church of St. Thomas the Apostle, Groombridge

Whether this is your first visit, or you have been coming to this Church for many years, we hope you will find us a welcoming, all-age and inclusive village church.

Our main service on Sundays is the Parish Eucharist (Communion) at 9.30 am. However, we offer a wide variety of church services alongside that, and we hope that there is something to meet   everyone’s spiritual needs.
