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 15th April 2021

Dear Church Family,

I hope you've been enjoying the Easter season! We'll be continuing with our hybrid in-person/online services this Sunday at 10,30am. If you would like to come and haven't let me know, please get in touch so we can ensure we have space for everyone. From home, you can continue to join by
Facebook or YouTube or on the Zoom call (631 970 6882).

There are a few things to say about our communal worship at this point:
- First, I would really encourage you to aim to come in person at least every few weeks if at all possible. Some of us have got into the habit of worshipping via a screen while that's been all we can do; others may have dropped out of engaging with corporate worship over the past months. Either way, being with fellow Christians for encouragement is perhaps more important than we realize. So please do consider carefully if you can return soon.
- Second, as we do begin to gather together, we need to be diligent in trying to obey the law and in looking to one another's needs. I'm quite sure there are very different views, opinions and emotions across the church at the moment; this is a time for patience, kindness and forbearance! As far as the current rules are concerned I need to remind you that inside the building different households should not 'mingle'. I would encourage you to go straight to your seats as you arrive at church, and then to take care to leave plenty of space from others when leaving the building.
