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 - 2nd December 2020

Dear Church,

It's great that Christmas cards have been going out across the parish this week - many thanks to all involved!

As lockdown ends, we are able to hold services again - tomorrow (Thursday) at 12pm we have a communion service in church. Please do come along if you would like to - remember that face coverings must be worn and social distancing maintained.

This Sunday is a little different - we will have a short service from the vicarage at 10.30am when I'll be finishing our series on Ezra. Follow on Facebook, Youtube or Zoom (631 970 6882). Then at 4pm we have our Christingle Service. Unfortunately this has to be online, but church in a bag families will be receiving all the things they need to make their Christingles at home - do come on to the Zoom call if you can! (but we're also on Facebook and YouTube too)

Call to Prayer November 2020

The Archbishops of the C of E (as well as other denominations and organizations like the Evangelical Alliance) are urging Christians to prioritize prayer throughout this time of lockdown. There are some resources you might like to use (here). In particular, we are encouraged:
- to pray at 6pm each day (suggestions for things to pray for on each day of the week in the resources)
- to fast and pray on Thursdays through lockdown
