St. Thomas’s Church is a lively community of faith in the Episcopal tradition. Located on Whitney Avenue in New Haven, near the border with Hamden, St. Thomas’s draws residents of those communities, including many associated with Yale University. Others travel from as far away as New Britain and Old Saybrook, drawn by St. Thomas’s special combination of spiritual curiosity, intellectual inquiry, heartfelt community, and beautiful worship.
Worship at St. Thomas’s is centered on the Sunday celebration of Holy Eucharist, with carefully embodied ritual that is both ancient in tradition and modern in outlook. Music enhances the atmosphere of holiness. Thoughtful sermons apply the lessons of Holy Scripture to the current events and concerns of the day. A “soft play” area provides a comfortable space for even the most active children and their parents. The congregation gathers around the altar for the Eucharistic prayers, with children encouraged to draw near.
St. Thomas’s is diverse in age (and includes many families with children), race, and sexual orientation. The St. Thomas’s community includes St. Thomas’s Day School, a K–6 school that strives to educate children broadly by cultivating intelligence while engaging heart and spirit.
If you are looking for a spiritual home, give St. Thomas’s a visit. You won’t be disappointed.
Yours in the Peace of Christ,
