Thornhill Parish Church

Serving the local community


Welcome... and do come inside, it's a safe and warm place, but unfortunately at the moment we cannot use the church- but the welcome applies to all you can find here.

Church inner doors

 Everyone is welcome – whether you are a lifetime church goer or

someone who has never been to church before, we'd love to meet you.

Unfortunately, we cannot be open for services right now, so read our bulletins and news or see our social media updates.
As soon as restrictions are lifted, we'd love to welcome you in person to a service.

In the meantime, our virtual services are available on  on Sundays .

 They are normally available from 9.00 and stay up after those times too. You can also follow them on Facebook

Let us pray...

                Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy

in this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from

 Your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Amen.

We know it can be quite intimidating to walk through the doors for the first time, why not have a look at excellent advice from a North Yorkshire church
The thought of coming to church can feel more than a little daunting. You will probably have a number of questions and reasons why it’s not a good idea.  We have highlighted some common reasons why people worry about attending, and tried to provide some reassurance that it might be better than you fear!
