About St Tom in the Hay


St Tom in the Hay is situated in an area in Northern Virginia that has and will continue to experience large population growth. Our church believes that we are all a part of a story; sometimes we see ourselves as the main characters, sometimes we think we are bystanders with little control over the outcome. In reality we are each a part of a much grander story, an adventure if you will. It’s a story full of promise, and hope, a story that holds meaning for the lives we live, and the people we were intended to be. We are inviting the community of Haymarket, VA to join us for this journey of discovery. As part of our staff team, your role will be to help equip this community— through training, developing, teaching, and resourcing— to find their place in God’s story.
