Forthcoming Events

Later this month we shall be launching the second 'Liverpool Plinth' competition, as well as hosting a major sculptural installation for one day. Our musical life also continues with an Early Music as Education concert on Saturday 26th January, 7.30 pm start. A performance of Bach's 'St. John Passion' on Saturday 9 March (tickets are free, but please book using Eventbrite). There will be two events on Tuesday 5 February. At 10:00 am in Church we shall be launching the regional Hate Crime Awareness Week with Merseyside Police; at 5:30 pm Fr Crispin will be installed as an Honorary Canon at Liverpool Cathedral. Everyone is welcome at both events.

 

Candlemas

The Christmas season continues until Candlemas (the Presentation of Christ in the Temple) and the crib in Church remains until then. We shall celebrate Candlemas on Sunday 3 February when we shall be joined by Bishop Paul who will bless our new font and also the icon which will be installed behind the altar.

 

Support for Asylum Link Merseyside

Our Church and World Action Group is leading us in two ways to support Asylum Link Merseyside (ALM): You are invited to a demonstration of South Asian cooking by ALM in our Refectory on 3 February at 12 o'clock. The light lunch and a drink is part of a fundraising campaign for their clothes store, cost £10. If you would like to join us for the lunch and have an opportunity to discuss the work that ALM does, please see Eva Cookey, Sarah Wrightson or Guy Barker and reserve a place so that we can cater for the right numbers. Also on the next four Sundays you can leave any spare clean clothes in a box in the Narthex - these will go to the ALM clothes store in Overbury Street.

 

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 pastoralteam@livpc.co.uk 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.

 

Icon for Sale

The artist who produced the icon of Our Lady of Vladmir on the south side of the church has another one available (A3 size) £350. If interested please speak to the Rector.

 

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.
