Welcome to St Thomas'! We are a small, but growing, church in the heart of the Groves area of York. We are committed to reaching out into our local community – serving people who are in need, and above all showing God’s love as best we can. We want to celebrate what God is doing in this wonderful part of His world.
We meet together each Sunday at 10.30am, and we hope that you will find our gatherings welcoming, family-friendly, and full of God’s presence.
If you live in this part of York, you can be assured that we are praying that God will richly bless you and that you will know his love and goodness in your life.
The Fear of the Lord - some comments from Al
A couple of weeks ago I spent three days with some other clergy at Wydale Hall for the final part of the ‘York Leadership Programme’. Being a bit of a naughty boy, I decided to have some time on my own instead of joining the others in the chapel, and I’m glad I did. As I read the Bible, I was struck afresh by the importance of living in ‘the fear of the Lord’.
This is often regarded as a problematic idea in our modern church. We don’t think living in fear of anything could ever be good. There are much better motives than fear; surely God wants us to be relaxed and at ease before him. We like to take the edge off the phrase by explaining that what the Bible really means is that we should be in awe of God, we should have a reverent attitude towards him.
Well, maybe there’s a bit in that, but then again
Next Men's Breakfast: Saturday Dec 1st 8.30am
Being in a home group is the best way of building deeper relationships with others at St Thomas’, as well as growing in understanding of the Bible as we discuss together.
There are home groups meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and on Monday and Wednesday daytimes. Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more.
