St Thomas' Church

The vision of St. Tom’s is “to know Jesus better and to make Jesus better known”.

We strive to achieve this vision through being a welcoming, thriving and growing Christian family that is visible and active in our local community. We recognise God's power to transform our lives and the lives of people who live in our two villages, through the Holy Spirit.

The Parish comprises the two villages of Fair Oak and Horton Heath situated four miles east of Eastleigh town and about halfway between the main centres of Winchester and Southampton.

Fair Oak and Horton Heath is mostly an urban Parish with residential areas and local shops, with rural areas in the east. The current population of the parish is 11,000 people, and is growing in size due to increased housing development in recent years. A further 2,200 homes are planned over the next 10 years, mainly through the One Horton Heath development.
