St. Thomas Church

St Thomas’ Church of England Church lies in the middle of the Village.

Built in 1896, this Grade 11 listed building was designed
by the Arts and Crafts architect W H Seth Smith
and originally intended to be the Greshambury Institute,
attached to the Chilworth Paper Mills.

Using local building materials, it is a typical example
of the Arts and Crafts style of architecture in Surrey.
St Thomas’ is Chilworth’s village church. It was built in 1896 and has a pretty Arts & Crafts design. The church is open every day and it has a church room available for community hire. It holds services every Sunday and is available for village christenings, weddings and funerals.
St Thomas’ is involved in the village community in many different ways and church members serve on all the various village committees and organisations.
The church provides a newsletter containing useful information about local events in the community which is delivered by members of the congregation to all the houses in the village.
The church is responsible for the appointment of governors for Chilworth Church of England Infant School and members of the congregation are governors at both the Infant School and Tillingbourne Junior School.
The church provides office facilities for the Chilworth Care Committee, an organisation that provides assistance and services to the people of Chilworth through the provision of volunteer drivers and transport. This Care Committee also holds a weekly coffee morning at the church at which the local Surrey Police Community Support Officer holds a monthly surgery for Chilworth residents.
