The foundation stone of St. Thomas's church was laid on Whit Monday, 20 May 1861. The nave was opened for worship in 1862. The chancel was added, and opened in July 1867. The church was eventually consecrated in March 1869.
"Among the many objects that attract the stranger's attention on his first visit to Rhyl, the bold outlines of St. Thomas's Church are sure to claim his notice and admiration; standing as it does in the very heart of the town, it can be viewed with advantage from all points. This Church, we need hardly remind most of our readers, has been built almost solely out of the voluntary donations of the inhabitants and the visitors frequenting this delightful watering place."
[From The Rhyl Record of 12 March 1869]
