St Luke’s and St Thomas’ churches to reopen for private prayer

St Thomas Church Charlton-1
St Thomas’ Church will reopen for private prayer later this week

We’re grateful to Revd. LIZ NEWMAN, Rector, Benefice of Charlton for letting us know about the imminent reopening of two of Charlton’s churches.

“So the church bells will be ringing at 10am on Wednesday 17th in Charlton Village to mark the reopening of St Luke’s. And they’ll be ringing in Woodland Terrace and Maryon Road at 10am on Thursday 18th to mark the re-opening of St Thomas’. We’ll be delighted to welcome any member of our community who seek a place to pray, reflect or just to think. Our opening times are on the website and displayed outside the buildings. The church is NOT a building – it’s the people who follow Jesus. But it is good, after almost 3 months, to open the doors again.”

Opening times are as follows:

Wednesday 10am – 12 noon
Sunday 2pm – 4pm

Thursday 10 am – 12 noon
Sunday 2pm – 4pm

“Everyone is welcome to come into the buildings to pray, reflect or just to think in a place of peace. Visitors will be asked to observe hygiene and distancing guidelines in the interests of everyone’s welfare”.
