Wass, St Thomas

Worship at St Thomas

Nestled under the hills at the edge of the North York Moors National Park, Wass with Byland is a small village, including the ruins of Byland Abbey, (which are run by English Heritage).  You will find the church of St Thomas, Wass on a quiet street, 100 yards up the hill from the pub.  The church is usually open during daylight hours and you are very welcome to come in and spend some time there in prayer or contemplation.

You would also be very welcome to join us for worship.  There are usually two services per month at Wass:

Every first Sunday of the Month at:
10.30am - Morning Prayer


Every third Sunday of the Month at:
10.30am - Holy Communion

The service pattern does occasionally change. You can find updated details of our service times here.

We are in a group of seven churches, but our links are strongest with the churches in Coxwold, Husthwaite and Carlton Husthwaite. When we don't have a service at our church, you will find a good number of the congregation at one of the others, so do click on our other churches and find out what is happening.
