Events coming up




Maundy Thursday

There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex today for the Maundy Thursday Agape.


Maundy Lilies

There is a list in the Narthex on Sunday mornings for you to place the name of a loved one you would like remembered on our Altar of Repose on Maundy Thursday. Money to Monica please, £4 for each loved one.


Annual Parochial Church Meeting

Thank you to all who supported our Annual Parochial Meeting. The names of those elected to the PCC for the next year will be posted in Church. After many years' service, Peter Summerfield has stepped down as Churchwarden (to become a Deputy Warden). Pauline Lewis continues as Warden and she has been joined by Eva Cookey.


Pastoral Team

If you are ill or just need some support or someone to talk to then feel free to get in touch with us by emailing and one of our team will get in touch. If you do not have access to email then you can contact either one of the Team Leaders, Clare Ledingham or Sarah Wrightson, whose numbers are available from the Parish Office.


Walk of Witness

For the last few years we have organised a Walk of Witness on Holy Saturday, led by the Bishop and Archbishop. If you can help 'steward' this event (approximately 1 hour) then please contact the clergy. It is our custom to offer hospitality to those attending the service at the end of the Walk of Witness. If you are able to help with serving tea/coffee for about an hour please contact Pauline Lewis.


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.
