Welcome in the name of the Lord to the ancient Parish Church 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 and is included in Simon Jenkins book “England’s 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 the church was re-ordered with a new kitchen and toilets, disabled facilities, an induction loop system, baby-changing facilities and more flexible furniture. Modern angels were etched into the glass doors of the new entrance lobby joining the impressive row of stained glass along the south side. The local school buried a time capsule at the west end of the church under the carved stone 'Be still and know..' We have now restored the Tower, the monuments done major work to the ancient glass in the Savile Chapel. We are now appealing for renewal funds for our organ.

Our primary reason for existence is to worship God and serve the local community. Both groups and individuals actively engage in developing and supporting each other and those around them. Donations to General funds to keep up this activity are always welcomed. Follow this link to see photos of work in progress
