Notices

Lent Study Group

As part of our Lent offering and to provide another level of teaching for the St Nick's community, we are considering running four sessions over the course of Lent discussing the Gospel of St Matthew, which we are reading in our Sunday services over this liturgical year. Please register your interest on the sheet in the narthex or speak to Fr Fergus or Louis for more information.

Modernity

You will notice some modern developments in the next few months here and there. First, there will be a digital display board in the Narthex. This will be moveable rather than fixed, but will allow us to target our welcome and advertising for the hundreds of visitors we receive every week. Second, there will be wireless access across the church building within the next month. There is more to follow after that ...

Marriage Preparation

Couples who are getting married in the next year should all have received a letter about marriage preparation sessions. These are great fun, and we gather all the coupkles together for this on Sundays in February. We begin with a special invitation to the choral service at 6.00 pm on Sunday 2nd February.

Visits and pastoral contacts

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

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.
