More details to follow, but if you have not been confirmed then now is a good time to think about it. Confirmation is when we make the promises of baptism as an adult, and the bishop prays for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives. There will be a Confirmation Service in the autumn.


Ecumenical Discussion at St Nick's

As part of the Roman Catholic Eucharistic Congress meeting in Liverpool in September, we shall be hosting an ecumenical event at St Nick's at 5.15 pm on Saturday 8th September. The renowned journalist and commentator Clifford Longley will be chairing a discussion in which the Archbishop of Liverpool, the Bishop of Liverpool and the Chair of the Methodist District will be reflecting on the Eucharist. We expect there to be much interest in this event: if you would like to attend then please book a (free) ticket here.


Mauretania Anniversary Service

On 23rd July at 11.00 am we shall be joined for a service by Cunard, civic dignitaries, and passengers from the Queen Elizabeth which will be berthed in the Mersey. The service will celebrate the 80th anniversary of the launch of the Mauretania, the largest transatlantic liner built on the Mersey. The service is free, but admission is by ticket. If you would like to attend, please email


Church Barbecue

Advance notice: we are going to keep the summer going that little bit longer with a Barbecue (with related other food) in the Gardens after the Parish Eucharist on Sunday 9th September. Please put the date in your diaries!


Micah Foodbank (formerly Hope+)

When you do your shopping, please remember that the Foodbank is always in need of donations of non-perishable food. Donations can be dropped off at the Church Office during the week and on Sundays.

Gift Aid

St Nick's is grateful for all donations, but if you are a UK taxpayer and you put your gift in one of our Gift Aid envelopes (found at the back of the Church) and add your name and address, then the Church can get a further 25% of your gift back from the Government.

Similarly, if you make donations to the Church by monthly standing order, and you are a UK taxpayer but have not yet completed a Gift Aid form and sent it to Pauline Lewis, our Gift Aid Secretary, then we would be most grateful if you would do this so that we can increase the value of your monthly donation by 25% at no cost or inconvenience to you.  Your name/details do not get passed to anybody and there is nothing further for you to do.

We encourage regular members of the congregation to join the Planned Giving Scheme.  Please contact Pauline Lewis for further details.
