Maundy Lilies

If you would like to buy a lily to commemorate a loved one on the Altar of Repose on Maundy Thursday, please write their name on the list in the Narthex. Lilies are £4 for each person commemorated.


Holy Saturday (31 March) - HELP REQUIRED

We are organizing an ecumenical Walk of Witness through the City Centre again this year for Holy Saturday (31 March). The Walk will begin on the Piazza of the Metropolitan Cathedral at 2.00 pm and we shall walk through the shopping districts to St Nick's. The Walk will be led by the Bishop, the Archbishop, and the leaders of the other denominations in the City. We need stewards to help with this: please contact Fr Crispin (email click here) if you can help. The duties are not onerous and a hi-viz vest is provided (if that is an incentive!).


Dusters and Marigolds!

Pre-Easter Church Clean, Saturday 24th March starting at 9.30 am. A great way to meet folk you may usually only see in church on a Sunday. Cake, coffee and tea a-plenty. Please see Roger Merchant if you are able to help. Thank you.


Our weekly e-bulletin

goes out each Wednesday.   If you didn't receive it and would like to, then please click here.


Grove Library Project, Nigeria

As part of our project last year to help the Grove Library Project in Nigeria, Eva Cookey gave a presentation as part of a fundraising lunch at The Athenaeum. By popular demand, there will be a 'follow up' lunch on Tuesday 10th April at 12.30 pm. Members of the Congregation are invited to book a place at the lunch (cost £25). Please see David Brazendale.


Micah Foodbank (formerly Hope+)

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.



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.
