A warm welcome to our St Nicholas website.
Thanks for stopping by. You will find regularly updated posts from various members of our community sharing aspects of our life together. Covid requirements will be listed below and of course, are liable to change quite rapidly. We are a people of great hope as we have said 'Yes' to God's loving invitation in Christ Jesus.

In 2020 we ran two Alpha courses beginning online via Zoom and finishing together at church, in person, and it was interesting reflecting on the two social dynamics. Check out the blog on it. We ran Alpha for men in r 2021 completing in October. Having explored the questions they had four men made decisions to commit to following Jesus. We will be running Alpha again later in 2022. To register your interest in joining a future Alpha course please click here.
Joining one of our courses.
Over the years, we have written or adapted a number of courses that help us move towards living life in all its fullness. At St Nics we are looking to grow as disciples of Jesus. These courses are based on biblical teaching and apart from Alpha assume that we have begun our discipleship journey with Jesus. Have a look at our testimony page to see some comments on these. Quite a number of people in our current church community have participated in some or all of our courses. However, we are now in a position where we will rerun a course if we have sufficient new participants. If you are new to St Nics Alpha is a great start. You might then take the 1:1 6 weeks 'Discipleship course' with an approved mentor. After that, you could join in 'Being Together' which is about community Life. 'Living Free' is in my view the most significant course we have to date and my hope is that most people who call St Nics their spiritual home would complete this course.
If you are interested in one of our courses please contact us via email at email@example.com. We'll let you know when we have sufficient participants and see if we can make it happen!
Since Pentecost 2020 we have decided to meet for a single gathering each Sunday at 9 am. The shape of the service is largely traditional with the addition of a few more contemporary worship songs. Resources are made available for families with younger children to be overseen by the families themselves. We call this Families4Families. We offer prayer ministry after the services, as well as hospitality before and afterwards. We want to be together for this next season and as we grow multiply into two gatherings when the time is right. Sermons are made available online.
As of 31st March, we no longer require QR registration. Social distancing rules and regular hygiene practices still apply. At present masks are no longer required to be worn in the building. Currently, we can offer 100 % capacity. We look forward to seeing you.
Wednesday Communion Service
9 am Wednesday
As with Sunday services, social distancing, regular hygiene continues. This service is a simple communion together with shortened teaching and hospitality afterwards. Over the past year, I usually explore one of the Saints or Christian heroes/heroines of the faith if they are remembered in our church readings.
Sunday evening Worship and Prayer Meetings
Sunday evening Worship and Prayer Meetings are held here at St Nic's starting at 5 pm.
All are welcome.
