Events coming up




Fr Crispin - Honorary Canon

Fr Crispin will be installed as an Honorary Canon of Liverpool Cathedral on Tuesday 5th February. All are welcome to attend the installation which will be at Evensong at 5.30 pm on that date.


New Font

The old font has now been removed from the Narthex and is on display in the Tower Room, underneath the Church. There is a new holy water stoup on the wall by the doors into church. The construction of the new font has now begun.



Our 'carol service season' begins in earnest this week. If you could help steward any of them, please speak to Pauline Lewis.


Louis Johnson is a changed man

After his week without eating chocolate, biscuits, cake or any rubbish that would have broken the spirit of the agreement, Louis has been spotted eating fruit voluntarily. More significantly, this life-changing week raised over £400 for Children in Need. Very many thanks to everyone who contributed to Louis' 'de-tox'!


Visits and pastoral contact

If you haven't seen someone in Church for awhile or you nitice that someone could do with a telephone call or a visit - or if you would like a visit yourself - you can contact the Pastoral Team on or by telephoning the Church Office. Alternatively, you are welcome to contact the clergy directly.


Raffle Prizes

If you would like to donate a prize for the City Carols Raffle on Wednesday 12th December, please give them to the Churchwardens.


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.



If you know of anyone who is unwell or would just simply appreciate a visit, then please contact Fr Fergus:


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.
