Call to prayer tealight


In response to reaching the terrible milestone of 100,000 deaths from COVID-19, the Archbishops invite all to call on God in Prayer. Starting on 1 February we invite you to set aside time every evening to pray, particularly at 6pm each day. More than ever, this is a time when we need to love each other. Prayer is an expression of love.

Read the letter.


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 25th February 2021

Dear Church,

We are grateful to have heard the 'roadmap' on Monday, and are now beginning to think about how this will affect our activities at St Thomas'. As always, I am very pleased to hear your thoughts, so please feel free to be in touch.

Today, we had a small communion service in the church building at 12pm. This will happen again next Thursday - please get in touch if you would like to come to a service: we can always do more than one service if numbers are looking high.

Reflection on Psalm 42 

The COVID 19 pandemic has been challenging for many of us and I’d like to invite you to meet with God and let Him speak to you by reading and reflecting on Psalm 42

• Give yourself at least 15 minutes of uninterrupted time
• Take a few moments to relax and come to inner stillness
• The questions below are used by many people to help them respond to a passage

Psalm 42

1 As the deer pants for streams of water,
     so my soul pants for you, my God.
