It first opened on 20th December 1877 as part of the Parish of Wickham, Newcastle. By 1924, the slab built church had fallen into considerable disrepair; the current building was rebuilt in that same year on the existing piers and reused many original materials. The church enjoyed a long life and made a significant contribution to both the local and wider communities. It was on 6th July 2014, that the last service took place and St Thomas' began the next part of its journey. The McGrath Family purchased the church in September 2014 and inherited some historic relics and objects such as the stained glass windows and cedar pews. The restoration, which was a labour of love, was completed in June 2016 and it became our family home. My family and I believe we are custodians of this building and would love others to enjoy what St Thomas has to offer through High Teas. We welcome you to visit and celebrate a special occasion with our High Teas by appointment. I look forward to seeing you soon. Kathryn
