Events coming up




Community Choir

Lord Mayor's Civic Service

This will be held here at 11.45 am on Sunday 29th October: the theme will be 'Regeneration'.


All Souls Service

Our All Souls Requiem, when we remember and pray for the departed, will be held on Sunday 29th October at 6.00 pm.  If you would like a name read out during the service please add it to the list at the back of the church on Sunday, or email (  If you know someone who would appreciate the opportunity to join the commemoration, please invite them along and encourage them to add names to the list.


Autumn Course at St Nick's

As we prepare to read St Mark's Gospel over the next year on Sunday mornings, there will be a short course (just three sessions) to introduce the themes.   This will be at 11.30 am in the Alexandra Room on 19th November, 26th November and 3rd December.


Shared Reading Group

Over the last few years we have worked on a few projects with The Reader (website).  Following the taster workshop in June, our own Shared Reading Group starts next Wednesday (18th October) in the Alexandra Room from 6.00 pm until 7.30 pm.  Contact the Church Office (email for more details.   All are welcome.


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.


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 has resumed on Wednesday mornings at 10.00 am.   More details from Emily Ridgway.   We need to refresh our advertising, so please spread the word to anyone who might be interested.


Homeless Communion

Our attempts at this project with the Methodist Pioneer Minister in the City Centre have suffered over the summer due to bad weather, but we are going to have one last attempt.  After the lunchtime Eucharist on Wednesday 18th October we shall share the grace of God and the fruits of his creation in bread and wine with passers by.  This is not a celebration of the Eucharist (which we will already have done) but a wider sharing of Gid's gifts.  All support is welcome!


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.
