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 June 2021

Hello Church,

I hope you're all enjoying the sunshine!

A reminder that it's really helpful if you can now book in via Eventbrite for this coming Sunday's service if you'd like to come in person. Just let me know if you have any difficulties (and a reminder that we are keeping seats free for those who are not online, so no need to book for them).
If you're watching from home, or from anywhere else in the world for that matter, you can join in as usual on Facebook or YouTube or you can join the Zoom call (631 970 6882).
This week we're delighted to have the Wilsons with us (Chris will be preaching) and we'll also be hearing from Dan Thomas who will soon be going on to his curacy.

A reminder that we have a new rhythm for Tuesdays and Thursdays until the end of July at least.
Tuesdays at 12.30pm (in church and livestreamed) I'll be preaching through Colossians (this week's talk is here)
Thursdays at 12.30pm (in church) we have a communion service, followed by a cafe inside church (or spilling out in good weather!) from 1-2pm.
