Welcome to St Thomas'! 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. 

We meet together each Sunday at 10.30am, and we hope that you will find our gatherings welcoming, family-friendly, and full of God’s presence. 

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. 

 

St Thomas News - 4th April 2019

Dear all,

A bit of a bumper pre-Easter email this week.

- This Saturday is a Men's Breakfast (8.30am) and Dick will be talking about his trip to Burundi.

- On Sunday, local storyteller, Althea Thomas-Hall, is running a storytelling workshop in (appropriately, given her name) St Thomas' Hall - it's free, and everyone is welcome! - 1.30pm

- Sunday 14th is Palm Sunday, and Joe Firth will once again be doing a Fairtrade stall after the service, so come with your dosh!

- As we approach Easter, a number of special events and services are happening:
+ There is a family event (craft etc) on Good Friday, 10.30am - please let Anna Minihan know if you can help.
+ There is a reflective 'Hour at the Cross' on Good Friday at 2pm.

- YorCafe have asked St Thomas' to host their 'Luke's Larder' in June, July and August on Wednesday mornings. This will mean that we invite people to the church hall to 'pay as they feel' for food that's been donated by supermarkets. We need a team of about six volunteers to make this happen, and it could be a really good way to meet local people. If you are interested, please contact Alison Stirk.

- And finally, The Rycrofts are going to be away for the next couple of Sundays - we are meeting up with The Wilsons, and will pass on love from St Thomas'!

May you know God's rich blessings while we're away!

Al
