Babes ’n’ Tots

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 - 5th September 2019

Dear all,

As we move into September, many of the usual groups are up and running again. Babes and Tots starts tomorrow (Friday 6th) at 9.30am.

On Saturday at 11am in the Minster Jose Linnane whom we so enjoyed having with us on placement is being licensed as a Reader. All are welcome. 

Looking ahead, the week beginning September 16th is York St John Freshers' Week, so please pray for many students arriving in our parish. Louise will be organizing prayer meetings each day that week (details to follow) and even some Club Mission on the Friday night for those so inclined!

We would love to have a lunch together after church on Sunday 22nd - please let me know if you could contribute a hot dish towards that.

Several of us have felt it important to have more regular times to gather in worship and prayer, simply seeking God together. We hope to do this on Oct 6th and Nov 3rd in the evenings. There is also a worship evening at St Cuthbert's House of Prayer on Friday 13th September from 7pm - all welcome.

The first Men's Breakfast of the new term will be Saturday 14th September, 8.30am.

Hope to see you soon
