Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Thomas' was built in 1849 to 1850, to designs by Joseph Gwilt. The style is Romanesque. In 1982 the church was remodelled by Thomas Ford and Partners.

Saint Thomas' is situated within the borough of Greenwich. Its parish now lies partly in Greenwich and partly in Woolwich, although the greater part is in Greenwich. The parish was formed from parts of the old parishes of Woolwich and Charlton; since the majority come from Woolwich, the parish received the designation 'Saint Thomas, Woolwich'. The Western edges of the old parish of Woolwich, in addition to the whole of the old parish of Charlton, now lie in the Borough of Greenwich, but Saint Thomas' modern designation is 'St Thomas, Old Charlton'.
