Mike and Helen Parker, Middle East

Mike & Helen Parker Jun 2020
Mike was our Rector from 1991 to 2003. Since 2006 Mike & Helen have been involved as agency leaders in the Middle East. They were based first in Cyprus to visit colleagues in the region, then served at the Anglican Cathedral in Cairo, before returning to Edinburgh in 2013 and travelling from here.

Mike handed over leadership early in 2020 and now provides pastoral support to workers in the area, co-ordinates intercession for churches and partners in the region, and helps to steer the #howwilltheyhear campaign assisting churches to reach to refugees and migrants in Europe.

Planning your Visit

New to church? 

Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life - we hope the website helps you find out what you want to know about St Thomas' Church.

We currently are meeting in person. It's not essential to book but it helps us if you can as we are required by government Covid regulations to keep records for track and trace purposes. Please book with the church office by Thursday morning - our phone number is: 0131 285 8782. We are also providing worship services and other activities online online through YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. 

Further details are available within the Church Life area of our website, which includes information about children's and youth activities and resources. Other activities are described within the Community section.
