A five-strong Missionary Committee is appointed by the PCC to oversee missionary matters.
The Committee presents an annual target to contribute to support missionaries from St Nicholas Church working in the UK and overseas, and missionary societies to which we are especially indebted.
Each missionary is supported in prayer by a Small Group as well as receiving prayer support in Sunday services and at the monthly prayer meetings. Each of our mission partners receives a Christian book from us for Christmas each year. Missionaries are usually interviewed during Sunday services when on furlough or visiting the UK.
Young people on short-term missionary attachments are encouraged and supported.
Further information can be obtained from Ian Dobbie on 01732 465109 or from the church office.
Standing up for faith and freedom
In November St Nicholas participated in “Red Wednesday” – a chance to show solidarity with victims of genocide, persecution and discrimination. For too many people, living their faith can cost them their lives. Red Wednesday was a practical way to use the freedoms we enjoy but which they are denied to show that we have not forgotten those whose blood is being shed on a daily basis for their faith.
