Benjamin Britten - Ceremony of Carols

In the midst of our Advent services, the choir from the Metropolitan Cathedral will be at St Nick's at 1.00 pm on Thursday 12th December to perform Britten's 'Ceremony of Carols'. All welcome - please do come and spread the word.

Church Christmas Card

Margaret Sadler will be selling hand-crafted cards as usual, but in addition our Sunday School has produced designs for printed cards which are now available at £3 per pack of 10 cards (including envelopes).

Compline and Benediction

Amidst the Carol Services, we have some Advent reflection and devotion as we prepare for Christmas. On Sunday 15th December there will be a service of Compline and Benediction at 6.00 pm. All are welcome for this service of plainsong and meditation.

Micah Foodbank (formerly Hope+)

We are the City Centre donation point for the Micah Foodbank. A number of people in the business community donate via the box in the Parish Centre, but we also encourage our regular congregation to donate. You can bring food on Sundays or during the week.

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.
