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 14th May 2021

Dear Church Family,

Thank you for all your support as I was licensed at St Wulstan's on Wednesday. There really is a warmth and enthusiasm there as we begin to explore how we can work together in future. I'm at St Wulstan's for the next two Sundays (their AGM and a baptism), but don't be fooled - I'll be back soon! This week, Sam will be leading at St Thomas' and thinking about how we are all called to use the gifts God gives us; next week, Phil will be leading the Pentecost service. The services continue to be live-streamed on Facebook or YouTube or on the Zoom call (631 970 6882) at 10.30am.

Thanks, too, if you've been in touch with thoughts about in-person/online and why you may not yet be ready to return to the building. It's really helpful to get a sense of how people are feeling, so please do get in touch if you'd like to.
