Notices

 

Bach - St John Passion

Advance notice: on Saturday 10th March we shall collaborate with the Liverpool Bach Collective on a performance of Bach's St John Passion (with Nicholas Mulroy as the Evangelist and Louis Hurst as Christus).  Admission is free, but please reserve your seat using Eventbrite.   See poster in Narthex for further details.

 

Our Lent Programme for the City

The first date will be 12.15 pm on Ash Wednesday for an ecumenical Eucharist, celebrated by the Bishop of Warrington.  He will be joined by the Chair of the Methodist District.   The preacher will be Msgr Stephen Alker, formerly Vicar General to the Army.  This will be the last service that the Bishop takes in the heart of the City before his retirement.  Please spread the word and invite others to join us.

 

Lent House Eucharists

Our main congregational clusters are in South Liverpool and the Wirral, so we invite everyone to come for food, fellowship and the Eucharist in a house, either on the Wirral on 28th February or South Liverpool on 7th March. More details to follow, but please mark your preferred date in your diary now!

 

Pancake Race

We are intending to run the Pancake Race for City Chefs again on Shrove Tuesday, 13th February. Come along at 11 am and witness a nail-biting race around the Gardens. The Chef from the Mercure Atlantic Tower holds the record for the last 2 years. Contestants always come forward at the last moment, so check with the Parish Office on Monday that the race is going ahead before coming along.

 

Flowers in Church

Throughout the year we rely on donations towards the flowers in Church, and we are grateful for the work of our skilled team of flower arrangers.  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 click here.

 

Little Nick's

Our pre-school toddler group has resumed on Wednesday mornings at 10.00 am.

 

Hope+ Foodbank

January and February are sometimes a quiet time for donations to Foodbanks, but the need for food does not reduce. 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.

 

Visiting

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.
