Notices

 

Signs and Displays

Our new exhibition, A Church for the City, is now on display. The exhibition takes us through 800 years of the Parish of Liverpool.
The PCC has spent much time discussing how we respond to the hundreds of visitors we receive every week during the summer. During the week (but probably not on Sunday mornings) you may notice four interpretation panels which will help guide people around the religious significance of our church building.

 

Beryl Robinson RIP

We are sad to report the death of Beryl Robinson, a former Churchwarden and mainstay of St Nick's. Her funeral will be on Monday 4th June at St Asaph Crematorium. However, members of the congregation may prefer to come here to church for the scattering of her ashes at 2.00 pm on Wednesday 13th June.

 

The Church Diary will be busy this summer

Here are some dates for your diary, but watch the e-bulletin for more over the next few weeks:
- Monday 21st May at 11 am - Keep the Home Fires Burning - A service to celebrate those who stayed at home in the second World War.
- Saturday 26th May during the day - 'Summer at St Nick's': food, BBQ and stalls in the gardens during the Mersey River Festival.
- Thursday 31st May at 11 am (note change of date!) - The unveiling of the first sculpture on the 'Liverpool Plinth'.
- Saturday 9th June at 11 am - Annual Service for HMS Eaglet Old and Bold Association and the Submariners' Association.

- Saturday 30th June at 10 am - Drumhead Service for Armed Forces Day (at Exchange Flags)

 

'Summer at St Nick's' - Saturday 26th May 11 am

Our event was a resounding success last year - please try to be with us for our now infamous BBQ, delicious afternoon tea with cakes from Cuthbert's Bakehouse, stalls, raffle, community choir, and more. Your generous donations are much appreciated. Please bring bottles to Roger or Michelle, cakes/preserves to Sarah Wrightson. If you would like to volunteer to help in any way, please let Pauline Lewis know. Ideas for raffle prizes are always welcome.

 

Liverpool Plinth

It is seven months since we launched our Liverpool Plinth competition for a temporary sculptural exhibit on the empty plinth overlooking Chapel Street. The unveiling of the sculpture, along with an accompanying exhibition, will hopefully take place at 11.00 am on Thursday 31st May. Members of the congregation would be most welcome at the launch event.

 

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.

 

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.
