Events coming up





We have arranged for volunteers from the charity ShelterBox to visit us this Sunday. ShelterBox brings emergency shelter to people affected by disasters all over the world, delivering the essentials they need to begin rebuilding their lives immediately after a disaster. The charity's name comes from the boxes containing family-sized tents and kits of blankets, water filtration packs, cooking sets, solar lights and other essentials. After the Eucharist on 16th September, the volunteers will give us an introductory talk and then demonstrate the equipment in our gardens. Come along and take part - bring your children, join the packing line and see if you can fit all the aid equipment into one of the boxes! In 2016, ShelterBox supported 29,300 families affected by various disasters.


Christian Basics and Confirmation

The Christian Basics and Confirmation course 'A Journey to the Heart of Love' continues after the service. There will be a Confirmation Service at the Cathedral on Tuesday 2nd October at 7.30 pm at which we shall present candidates. Everyone is invited to come and support. More details from the clergy.


Macmillan Coffee Morning - Friday 28th September at 10.30 am

Due to kitchen access problems we will now be holding the above event on Friday 28th September, not Thursday 27th. We will start at 10.30 am and end at noon so as to be clear by the time of the 12.15 Eucharist. Apologies for this necessary change. Last year you were so fantastically generous with your time, donations and your baking, please support me again. This year Macmillan are urging us to go "Sweet and Savoury", this widens your choice of what you could do. Please see me if you are able to help and/or contribute to this worthy cause. Thank you - Roger.


The Giants are back on 7th October

We have had rather a lot of disruption to the roads this summer and the final major event will be on Sunday 7th October on the weekend when the Giants will be back in Liverpool. On that day we shall have no morning service, but please come instead to a Choral Eucharist at 6.00 pm with the St Nicholas Singers. Wine (and fruit juice) will be served after the service.


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.



If you know of anyone who is unwell or would just simply appreciate a visit, then please contact Fr Fergus:


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.
