Events coming up


If you would like information about when the bells will be ringing this week, please visit the bellringers' website here.



Worshipping together

Our service last Sunday was a time of celebration, but it was also the beginning of a long journey to restore worship. Each week, we expect to develop and build on the previous week so that we feel comfortable and safe before progressing further. Chairs in church are placed on their own or in housegold groups. However, please remember that you can mitigate any risk by wearing a face mask. There are various instructions around the building to help us all keep safe, and there is enough hand sanitizer in the building to set Merseyside alight!


will be meeting this Thursday by Zoom. All PCC members have received details by email but if you need help with the technology please speak to the clergy.

The Church Office

is now open on a very part-time basis. E-mails and telephone calls should be picked up more swiftly than in the last few months.

Do you need a helping hand?

Various members of the congregation are available to give you help and assistance if needed. This could be as simple as some shopping or collecting foodbank donations from your house, or it could be some other domestic trauma which you cannot work out how to solve whilst everyone is at home and businesses are not operating. Please contact Fr Crispin who can connect you with whatever assistance you need.

Micah Foodbank

The food donation box in the Narthex is still attracting regular offerings and is being emptied regularly. The need continues, so please do donate if you can. If you need donations picking up from your house, then contact the clergy.

St Nick's Corona Anthology

Fr Fergus is putting together a selection of prayers, reflections, and poems to be collated into a ‘St Nick’s Corona Anthology’. Maybe you’re using your time at home to produce beautiful verse or perhaps you’ve found a particular prayer or passage helpful at this juncture- if so we’d love to know. Please email all to and we’ll put things together into a resource for everyone.

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.
