NOTE FROM THE RECTOR
Welcome to website of St. Thomas’ Anglican Church, affectionately known as “The Old Garrison.” From its birth until the year 1870 the side galleries of the church building were regularly occupied by the soldiers of the garrison, hence its identity. St. Thomas is a downtown church that has a long and rich tradition of music ministry, liturgical practice, and community outreach. With over one and three quarters of a century to its credit the people continue to worship in the same beautiful old building.
Our vision is simple: To be an enduring beacon drawing all closer to Jesus Christ. At St. Thomas we regularly assess our ministries as we seek to provide a loving, encouraging, and challenging environment so that all may know and grow in relationship with Christ and make him know.
We are blessed that you have found us and we certainly hope you will be able to easily navigate your way through this site and find the information you are looking for; And we would be happy to answer any questions you have by email, or phone, and even happier to welcome you to our worship, fellowship, outreach work or spiritual formation groups. The call to follow Jesus is a call to join a faith community and learning what it means to be a part of this community. Please come and join us.
Yours in Christ,
The Reverend Gregory Mercer
(St. Thomas' parish is part of the Anglican Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, an Alpha partner, a Willow Creek Association member, and a living congregation of the Body of Christ in the city St. John's.)
