Welcome in the name of the Lord to the ancient Parish of St Michael and All Angels (Thornhill Parish Church) reaching out and serving the community both locally and nationally. You are in good company as there has been Christian worship on this site since Anglo-Saxon times. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, this building is grade one listed, in a Conservation area and is included in Simon Jenkins book Englands Thousand Best Churches”. Although we are hugely proud of our historical significance, we recognise that it is both a duty and a joy to maintain the integrity of the past whilst accommodating the present and making room for the future. In the year 2,000 and onwards the church has been re-ordered to make it fit for modern needs. Whilst doing this work we have ensured the historic fabric of windows and monuments have been conserved and repaired.

Our primary reason for existence is to worship God and serve the local community. In addition to worship we have concerts, exhibitions, school visits and activities as well as supporting local & charitable work. 

Both in groups and as individuals, we actively engage in developing and supporting each other and our community. Donations to General funds to keep up this activity are always welcomed.
