St. Thomas’ Church, situated in Parkgate and sometimes affectionately known as the ‘Fisherman’s Church’, was, until recently closed for 16 years to undergo a program of refurbishment. Following a vigorous fundraising campaign by various groups in the community of Parkgate, restoration of the deemed unsafe building was paid for and completed between 2002 and 2009, and the Grade 11 listed building was eventually reopened by the Bishop of Chester on 4th July 2010.

Originally built as a Congregational Chapel in 1843, later becoming a Presbyterian Church it was purchased for the Church of England in 1917. Unlike its sister church, St Michael’s it is a ‘Chapel of Ease’ and solely the responsibility of the Vicar of Neston and does not come under the jurisdiction of the Parochial Church Council.

The interior of the church is very adaptable and, as a result, can be used as a community resource by way of a center for village life. This is strongly encouraged by the Church and especially by the supporting group who originally raised the money and led the refurbishment. This group is also the basis for a very strong and growing congregation. The exterior of the church is still subject to redevelopment and upgrading.

ONLINE GIVING

Our three churches, St Mary & St Helen Neston, St Michael’s Little Neston, and St Thomas’ Parkgate have been working and praying hard during the whole of the Pandemic and will continue to do so. Now, these buildings are now open for worship once again. But with consequences, income has fallen and bills still have to be paid. If you feel you could help to support the ongoing work of our churches you can do so by donating here online safe and secure.
