The Church of St Thomas is the parish church of the village of Redwick, to the south east of the city of Newport, South Wales, Great Britain. A medieval church, Perpendicular in style, and with elements dating from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, possibly with twelfth century origins, it was listed Grade I on 3 January 1963.

History and description

The church has an "unusual plan", with a central tower standing between the chancel and the nave. In common with many churches on The Gwent Levels, the church suffered during the Great Flood of 1606/7 and a mark on the wall of the porch records the height reached by the water during the flood.

Extensive restoration was carried out by James Norton in 1874–5.
