Saturday and Sunday 9/10 September Heritage Open Days - In conjunction with the Albert Dock we shall be participating in this year's Heritage Open Days. There will be refreshments and tours, 10 am - 1.30 pm (Saturday) and 1 pm - 4 pm (Sunday). More information (and request for volunteers) nearer the time.


Exhibition in Church

As part of our commemoration of Capt Noel Chavasse VC and bar at the end of the month, an exhibition begins in Church this week illustrating the Liverpool Scottish Regiment in the First World War.  Please do drop in to see it and invite friends and contacts along.   The exhibition will remain up for a few weeks.


First Aiders

With such a varied ministry, it is always useful for us to know who in the regular congregation has First Aid training.   If you have a current First Aid certificate then please let the Churchwardens know.   We also have a defibrillator, for which some members of the church community have received training.   If you have been trained elsewhere, it would be useful to know.


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.


'Homeless Communion'

We have not had much luck with the weather for our 'Homeless Communion' following the first successful attempt in May.   This is not a Eucharist, which we shall celebrate in Church at 12.15 pm, but a sharing og God's grace through food and drink with those who sit in the Church Gardens at lunchtime.   The next one will be at 12.45 pm on Monday 21st August.   Support and help would be very welcome!


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 Wednesday morning pre-school toddler group has been taking a rest for the last couple of months.  We already have one person willing to share in the leadership of getting it going again in the autumn.   If you think you could help with this, please speak to Fr Crispin.


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.
