West Thorpe Church is situated in Dringhouses, York and serves it and the surrounding community.   We are fortunate to have a wonderful  multi purpose building, which is very well used both by the Church and by the local community.

Our church family, who are predominantly retired, meet regularly on a Sunday morning to worship together, but we also offer monthly family focussed worship, as well as the intriguing Forest Church.

We also host a Monthly Free Film afternoon, a Craft and Chat, Fellowship Group, Boccia and a very successful parent and toddler group, we call Twiglets, and are home to a Preschool and large number of community groups serving Dringhouses.   Please use the menu to see more!

Zoom on Sunday 10:30am

Join us on Sunday for another online bible study/worship time hosted by Acomb, Southlands, West Thorpe & Holgate Methodist churches.

For those who missed last week’s shared time, the following is our minister, Andy’s reflection Acts 9:1-25, Saul’s Conversion (you’ll find more Sunday’s on our You Tube channel or Facebook page)

Holgate’s Mark Bevan was leading the circuit service this morning, preaching from an empty Holgate Methodist church. It includes the hymn rock of ages, recorded by the Holgate choir. I hope you might check it out. The circuit service is also available each week, at the same time as our Zoom, so if you would like to watch it, then click subscribe and you will be sent a link each week. Feel free to join us, after our Zoom, for coffee. If you’d like to watch both, I will try and post them on this email each week.

We usually linger after the ‘worship’ to continue to ‘be church’, in conversation in different physical church groups. This is the time where we catch up with one another, share concerns, and develop ways in which we might express God’s love in our context practically…so do stay for that if you are able.

The following is a video produced by our circuit, for Pentecost, featuring individuals from across the York Methodist churches.
