Bringing New Life Back to Finchfield

St Thomas Church Finchfield

At long last we are delighted to let you know we have ex­changed contracts to purchase St Thomas Church next to Lidl Supermarket.

Our aim is to fully en­gage with local resi­dents and we cannot wait to welcome you into St Thomas Church. It will be wonderful to see this Victorian build­ing restored and used again to benefit the community as a whole in line with our charita­ble objectives.

Our vision is to bring new life back into the very heart of Finchfield and play an active role serving the community.

This is an exciting time for the church as we move forward with unity of purpose. Once the building is restored we have great things planned for the future. It has been a great priv­ilege to lead Windmill Community Church and to see Christian friend­ships flourish between people of all ages.

What happened to St Thomas Church

St Thomas Church FinchfieldSt Thomas Church was closed 20 years ago and has been vacant ever since. It has fallen into complete disrepair and substantial structural work is needed to save it and bring it back into use. We do not underestimate the challenge ahead. However Windmill Community Church members have pro­vided the means to acquire the build­ing and we now need to raise funds through donations and grants for its restoration.

Thank you for your support

We are extremely grateful for the valuable support we have received from local residents, Finch­field and Castlecroft Community Association, The Parish of Tettenhall Wood PCC, Local Councillors, Local Authority, Lidl UK, Church Growth Trust and the Church Planting Initiative in helping us to bring our vision so far into being. We are aware that over the years many local supporters have volun­teered to help with the restoration.

If you would like to be in­cluded on our database we will keep you updated via our newslet­ters.

Whilst we are currently limited by Health and Safety, rest assured we will invite everyone to visit the building once it is safe to do so. We are also keen to enlist the help of extra volunteer trades people who might be willing to offer their skills with some practical work.
