The Church of St. Thomas the Martyr is a former church in Bristol, originally built in the fifteenth century. After being declared redundant, the church came into the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and became recorded in England’s National Heritage List. Today, it is used for worship by a Romanian Orthodox Church on Sundays and special days; the site is also available for hire for special events. It has been used for several music acts including Australian musician RY X and is the site for many free concerts. The building has a capacity of 500 people.
