Notices

New Circumstances - Again

Following the suspension of public worship in the Church of England, here is a quick reminder of our strategic priorities at St Nick's.

• How we are promoting the life of the congregation of St Nick's, supporting our church community, and caring for each other.
• How we are fulfilling our mission and ministry in the centre of Liverpool, reaching out to those around us, supporting those in need, and ministering to the most vulnerable.
• How we are protecting the future of our Church by pragmatic care of our institution and its structures.

For the time being, there will be more than one e-bulletin a week, and our worship and corporate life will be on-line. However, this is also a time for creativity, and if you have got any ideas to support any of the principles above then please drop the clergy a line.

Caring for each other

We now have a system in place for ensuring we maintain regular contact with each other. When everything returns to normal, we hope that we shall find our church community strong and still connected with each other. Whilst the clergy and pastoral team will keep ringing and e-mailing people, please do look out for others in the congregation. If you or someone else could do with some practical help (such as shopping) then please contact the Parish Office (0151 236 5287 or enquiries@livpc.co.uk) or e-mail the clergy direct.

Micah Foodbank

At the moment we are continuing to serve the City and Parish in different ways, but the most visible is the Foodbank. Although the Church is temporarily closed for visitors and worship, there is a box by the main doors for donations of food. The box is checked regularly, so if you are passing (as part of an authorised activity!) then please drop some food in.

St Nick's Corona Anthology

Fr Fergus is putting together a selection of prayers, reflections, and poems to be collated into a ‘St Nick’s Corona Anthology’. Maybe you’re using your time at home to produce beautiful verse or perhaps you’ve found a particular prayer or passage helpful at this juncture- if so we’d love to know. Please email all to frfergus@livpc.co.uk and we’ll put things together into a resource for everyone.

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.
