Welcome to The Parish Church of St Thomas and St Edmund's Website
"Welcome to St Thomas's website! Wherever you are in the world, we're glad you dropped by. Here in the heart of Salisbury we seek God in a broad and welcoming Anglican environment. Encountering God in a beautiful, but unselfconscious, worship, we pray that the encounter will propel us out to serve all God's people here."
Thought for the Month from
Rev'd Canon David Linaker
Prayer for December
Jesus came as a human baby to show us what a life worth following looks like.
Can we reach through our excitement or dread of the Christmas Season, to find in
ourselves a life worth following?
Lord Jesus Christ,
Come to my heart.
Illumine my soul and banish all darkness.
Set me free to live and love after your example,
and so follow you to
