Our Story : The Rebuild


St Thomas Church was closed 20 years ago and had been vacant ever since. It had fallen into complete disrepair and substantial structural work was needed to save it and bring it back into use. Despite this, we accepted this challenge and Windmill Community Church members willingly pro­vided the means to acquire the build­ing and thanks to very generous supporters we were able to raise enough funds to rebuild and restore St.Thomas Church which after construction and purchase has become Windmill Community Church.

We are extremely grateful for the valuable support we have received from local residents, Finch­field and Castlecroft Community Association, The Parish of Tettenhall Wood PCC, Local Councillors, Local Authority, Lidl UK, Church Growth Trust and the Church Planting Initiative in helping us to bring our vision so far into being. We are aware that over the years many local supporters have volun­teered to help with the restoration.

We are very involved in the community of Finchfield and will be adding an extension to the St. Thomas Building soon to accommodate our growing church, groups, and activities.

                               UPDATE SPRING 2020

We are currently extending the church building to allow several meetings to take place at the same time and to further our youth outreach. We are grateful to the various grant funders who have supported us over recent years and especially to our main funder "Enovert Community Trust."
