Welcome to St. Thomas Church in Bath NC, a community
of joy and celebration, rooted in history.



St. Thomas Episcopal Church, in the heart of Historic Bath, has been an active parish for more than 300 years. The church was built in 1734 and is the oldest church building in the state. Services are held in the historic structure every Sunday as well as other times throughout the year.

Come worship and celebrate with us!

I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord. Psalm 122:1
