Notices

Worshipping together

All are warmly invited to join in worship at the Parish Church, either in person or by sharing in the live-stream of the service. Chairs in church are placed on their own or in housegold groups. Other measures to mitigate risks include hand-sanitizer stations, a one-way system, separate entry/exit doors, test and trace recording and Communion brought to the congregation. However, please remember that we are all strongly encouraged to wear a face mask. Although shielding officially ends this week, those who are unable to return to church at the moment can join a live-stream of the service on our YouTube channel.

Live-Streaming

Although the live-streaming of Sunday services will not continue indefinitely, it will be here for awhile. As attendance at weddings and funerals is also limited, we are now offering streaming as an option to families. We need more volunteers to support the streaming on Sunday mornings: if you think you might have the necessary computer or camera skills, please have a word with Fr Crispin.

Louis Johnson's Ordination

Louis at last has a date for his ordination to the diaconate. IN any other year, there would have been a large contingent of people from St Nick's there to support him, but the current regulations for attendance at 'life events' means that the ticket allocation is extremely restricted. Please pray for him as he prepares for his ordination on the afternoon of 27th September: Fr Crispin will attend the service on behalf of everyone at St Nick's, and hopefully we shall be able to welcome (Fr) Louis back later in the autumn.

New Parish Assistant

Today we welcome our new Parish Assistant, Ian Grant-Funck, who will be with us until next summer. Even if we cannot say hello, please wave at him!

Annual Parochial Church Meeting

This will take place on 25th October during the service. It will be notably low key!

Beacon: an evening of poetry and music

On 3rd October we shall commemorate the first recorded lack resident of Liverpool buried in our churchyard with a stone to be unveiled at the Lord Mayor's Civic Service. Later in the day we shall continue the theme with an evening of poetry from local poets which evokes a sense of our common heritage. All are welcome. Tickets are free but please book via Eventbrite.

Evening Services - Dates for your Diary

It will be January before our regular Choral Evensong resumes, but the following evening choral services are planned for the autumn, all beginning at 6.00 pm.
1st November: Choral Eucharist for All Souls'
22nd November: Choral Evensong (Christ the King/St Cecilia)
20th December: Nine Lessons and Carols (ticketed)

Micah Foodbank

The food donation box in the Narthex is still attracting regular offerings and is being emptied regularly. The need continues, so please do donate if you can. If you need donations picking up from your house, then contact the clergy.

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.
