Harvest Festival

this year will be on Sunday 1st October.   We shall invite donations of tea, coffee, UHT milk and sugar to help the work of the Sisters (Missionaries of Charity) in Seel St.   Other donations will go to the Foodbank.   Also, contributuions towards Harvest Festival flowers would be very gratefully received by the Flower Team.   Please see Monica Lawrence or the Churchwardens.

Fr David Emmott

extends an invitation to friends at St Nick's to celebrate fifty years of priestly ministry.   He has a long association with St Nick's.   After retiring as Team Vicar here in 2006 he has remained part of the life of the Church and frequently celebrates midweek Eucharists here.   His anniversary Eucharist will be at noon on Saturday 23rd September at St Dunstan's Church, Earle Road, L7 6HD.


Matthew Finnegan RIP

Matthew's funeral will take place in church on Wednesday (20th September) at 11.00 am, followed by committal at 12.30 pm at Yewtree Cemetery.


Flowers in Church

Throughout the year our team of Flower Ladies (though men are welcome! - please see Monica) keep the Church decorated.   They ensure that every special occasion, from weddings to civic services, is enhanced.  If you would like to donate to the flower fund, or have flowers to commemorate or celebrate a particular date, please see Monica Lawrence.


Macmillan Coffee Morning

Roger Merchant will be our host for a Coffee Morning in Church on Friday 29th September, 10.00 am until 12.00 noon.   Please invite people along.


Our weekly e-bulletin

goes out each Wednesday.   If you didn't receive it and would like to, then please contact the Office with your email address. (email


Little Nick's

Our pre-school toddler group will resume on Wednesday 20th September at 10.00 am.   We already have one person willing to share in the leadership of the group.   If you think you could help with this, please speak to Fr Crispin or Emily Ridgway.   We need to refresh our advertising, so please spread the word to anyone who might be interested.


New Member of the Team

As many of you know, Dr Louis Johnson from our congregation has been selected for training for ordination.  As part of his training,at St Mellitus College, he will spend the next three years working as part of the staff team at St Nick's.  We welcome him today into this new role.


Hope+ Foodbank

There is usually a notice about the Foodbank somewhere in Church life, but the Church Council feel that it has become like pastel wallpaper in its visibility.   Please remember that our donations help feed those most in need in the city, and a few tins/jars/packets from individuals every week or month can have a tremendous cumulative effect.   Donations can be dropped off at the Church Office every day.



If you know of anyone who is unwell or would just simply appreciate a visit, please let the Clergy know.


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.
