At St Nicholas we love to welcome people on Sundays.
We know that coming to a church for the first time can be a bit daunting. Whether you’ve never been to church before or it’s something you’re really familiar with, we try and make your time with us as welcoming and enjoyable as possible. Watch Gemma’s story about when she came along to St Nics for the first time.
When and where
8am Communion Service
Our early morning communion service using the spoken word. We alternate between Book of Common Prayer and Common Worship Liturgy. A quieter service open to all.

What to expect
Our services include times of singing, reading the Bible, prayers, announcements and a sermon. Once a month we take communion together. You don’t need to join in with anything you don’t want to.
When you come along, do introduce yourself to one of us! We’d love to meet you and help you feel at home among us.
Frequently Asked Questions

Members of our congregations will lead us in songs and prayers during the service. Words for songs and prayers like the Lord’s Prayer are projected on the screen so you can follow along. You do not need to join in if you are not comfortable with that. It’s ok to just sit and listen!
Our services usually last between 60 and 75 minutes and we tend to stay around to chat afterwards.
