Welcome to St Thomas' in the Groves! 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. 

Although we normally meet together each Sunday at 10.30am, and we hope that people find our gatherings welcoming, family-friendly, and full of God’s presence, because of the coronavirus pandemic we are not able to meet in person but instead are moving online and making other provisions for pastoral support.

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. 



There's a lot happening on our facebook page with talks, services, children's stuff and chat.

St Thomas News 29th April 2021

Dear Church Family,

As is our current custom, we'll have the Sunday morning service in the building and streamed online at 10.30. Please get in touch if you'd like to come (and do consider it if you haven't yet been back to the building). To join in from home, you can continue to watch on Facebook or YouTube or on the Zoom call (631 970 6882).
This Sunday we also have a family service at 4pm as an opportunity for families to get together in church. It would be helpful if you could let me or Charlotte know if you plan to come. We'd encourage families to make this the priority over the morning service this week if you're able to.

Tuesdays - Prayer Meeting on Zoom at 9am (Zoom ID 631 970 6882)
Wednesdays - Communion service on Wednesdays at 1pm, followed by an outdoor cafe (groups of six round tables) until 3pm. (I don't think Wednesday seems the best for quite a few people, so we will change this soon, once the rules change on May 17th - more details to follow.)
Thursdays - A new Tiny Tots group for pre-schoolers and parents is running on Thursday mornings (please contact Charlotte for more details).
