Courses

At St Nicholas we regularly run a variety of series and courses that are open to everyone. Please feel welcome to sign up and come along.

The world is hungry for hope.

But these days, hope often feels hard to come by. Where can we find a hope that won’t disappoint us?

The Christian faith claims to offer: a joyful expectation for the future, based on true events in the past, which changes everything about my present. Sound too good to be true?

Whatever you do or don’t believe, Hope Explored is your opportunity to explore, to discuss, to question, to discover.

Christianity Explored is for anyone who wants to think about the meaning of life.

Beginning on 13th February, this 7 week series is completely free. You don’t need to know anything about the Bible and you won’t be asked to pray or sing. You can ask any question you like or you can just sit and listen. We’d love to have you.

The Marriage Course is for couples who want to invest in their relationship and and understand how to navigate married life.

We run this course every few years and it takes place over seven evening sessions. Some couples already have a strong relationship; others are in need of a bit of help. Either way the course offers a lifetime of practical ideas and tools to invest in the future of any couple.

The Marriage Course is based on Christian principles, but is open to all married couples, whatever your beliefs.

The Pre-Marriage Course is open to all engaged couples, whether or not they are planning to get married at St Nicholas

Each course is led by a married couple, who host five evening sessions in their home including a meal.

First Steps Baptism Course

It’s exciting to see a small child taking their first steps. As a church we want to see children thriving and developing both physically and spiritually. But where does baptism fit in?

There are lots of questions surrounding baptism. What does it signify? How old should the child be? What promises do the parents need to make? Who can be godparents? How does baptism relate to confirmation? Should we wait until our child is older?

Restored Lives is a charity which provides resources to help people recover fully from relationship breakdown.

By supporting people through separation or divorce, when a relationship is beyond repair, they help reduce the negative effects on individuals, children and communities.

Each year we host one of their courses. It’s open to everyone.
