The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, St Nicolas and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in our church building. However, please be reassured that we are currently exploring other ways we might keep in contact with one another and encourage one another at this time.
This is Holy Week! Do join us for one of these services
Upcoming services will be posted here, and you can find previous ones on our YouTube channel

An Easter message
Chris Holloway, one of our Licensed Lay Ministers, offers some thoughts as we come to Good Friday and Easter Day
Surely at this time prayer is more important than ever. Please do pray for our community and all those in the caring professions as well as everyone affected by the Coronavirus. There is support for daily prayers at our Prayer Page, where you can also ask us to pray for someone or something important to you
