Events coming up




Pentecost Languages

For the last couple of years we have tried to have as many languages as possible reading the Pentecost Reading (Acts 2.1-21) simultaneously.   We can source the translation, if you can provide the accent!  Please email Fr Crispin to offer a language.   Fluency not essential!



There will be a service of Confirmation during the Parish Eucharist on 4th June (Pentecost Sunday).  At Confirmation, we make an adult declaration of faith, the Bishop lays hands on us and prays for the coming of the Holy Spirit.   If you are an adult who would like to be confirmed, please email Rev. Michelle Montrose .


The Bank Holiday 'Rock'N'Roll Marathon'

is the worst day of the year for access to church.  However, it is not impossble, so please do try to get here!  Peter Summerfield will send details of road closures at the weekend to those on the parking database.


Summer at St Nick's

We are inviting the City into church during the River Festival and Armed Forces Day.  The main attraction is food and drink, with other stalls and church tours on offer.  Donations of jam jars (empty, or full of home-made jam) and (unopened) bottles for the Bottle Stall would be much appreciated.  Thank you to those who have volunteered: there is plenty of space for more volunteers!  Please see Pauline Lewis (or contact her via the Church Office).


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


Thursday 25th May at 11 am

Cunard service commemorating the loss of the Atlantic Conveyor in 1982.


Hope+ Foodbank

Please remember that donations to the Food Bank are always welcome, either on Sundays or during the week.   We particularly encourage the congregation to bring donations for the Food Bank on the first Sunday of the month.


The Reverend Bill Addy

The Revd. Bill Addy will be licensed by the Bishop of Liverpool as Assistant Priest at St Nick's on Thursday 8th June at 6.30 pm.  Please save the date in your diary now.



If you know of anyone who is unwell or would just simply appreciate a visit, please let Fr David 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.
