Notices

Confirmation Service

Very many congratulations to Dean, Laura and Deborah who were confirmed on Monday evening at the Cathedral by the Bishop of Liverpool. We have other candidates who are offering themselves for confirmation soon, and if you would like to join them then please speak to the clergy.

How are we getting on?

The PCC is continually monitoring our congregational life and how we can improve on our welcome and inclusivity. We are guided in this by our Vision and Strategy document. We should be grateful if as many people as possible could complete a survey we are doing.

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).

Fr Fergus's latest book

Priests de la Resistance is published this week. It explores the lives of a number of twentieth-century priests who were active in their opposition to fascism. From wartime Athens to sixties Alabama, Vichy France to military dictatorship in Brazil, these are the priests who dared to speak out (and act out) against those who would persuade us that hate is stronger than love.

Carol Services

It is less than a month until the Carol Service season begins. At the moment we have nineteen services booked in during December. If you could help as a welcomer and steward at any of these, please contact Pauline Lewis.

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.
