Events coming up



Macmillan Coffee Morning - Saturday 21st September - 10.30am - 1.00 pm

This year we are holding our Coffee Morning on a Saturday and with a particular target audience of our regular congregation. We need volunteers, both to bake and to serve, and on the morning itself there will be live music (popular and classical) to entertain everyone. There will be a sign up in the Narthex from Sunday 1st September for volunteers (both bakers and servers!) More information, or register your support with Roger Merchant.

Peter Tatchell

The well-known human rights activist Peter Tatchell will be speaking at the Parish Church on Wednesday 16th October. This is a free event but we are asking people to book a ticket on Eventbrite.

Dates for your Diary

We have a number of special events and services coming up in the next few months:
1st September at 12.00 noon - Merchant Navy Day
8th September at 2.00 pm - Liverpool PALS service (remembering the centenary of their return from Russia)
15th September at 2.00 pm - Parachute Regiment Service (commemorating 75 years since Operation Market Garden (Arnhem)
21st September from 10.30 am - Macmillan Coffee Morning here in church


Over the summer many people are away at various points, but please come on Sunday mornings whenever you are able. In the meantime, the e-bulletin will continue to go out every Wednesday morning, so keep an eye on it for any news. If you are unwell or aware of anyone else in the congregation who would appreciate some contact, please drop us a line at or by telephoning the church office. Alternatively, you are welcome to contact the clergy directly.

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. St Nick's supports the Foodbank at every level, with donations of food, with volunteering, and Fr Crispin is a Trustee. The summer can be a difficult time for families as there are no school meals, so please do remember them in your weekly shop.

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.
