The services at St Nicholas are designed to be visitor friendly, so we regularly explain what we're doing at points during the service, and why we're doing it. You don't have to know anything before you visit, or bring anything. The services mostly contain a mixture of songs, a reading or two from the Bible, prayers and a short talk on a passage from the Bible. The service also contains a confession and creed (statement of beliefs), which you are welcome to join in with as you wish. The evening service is slightly less formal as well as being smaller in terms of the number of people who come. See the What to Expect on Sundays page for more info.
We take the safeguarding of both children and adults very seriously. Every group leader has been through a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check at enhanced level and attends annual training. For more information on our Safeguarding policy, please contact Claire Tagg (who is in charge of Safeguarding at St Nicholas) through the Church Office
We take Health & Safety seriously at St Nicholas and have developed a church-specific policy in order that people and things in our community are kept as safe as possible. Please get in touch with our Health & Safety officers, through the Church Office, if you have any questions or comments.
The best way to do this is to ring the Church Office or fill in the form on the 'Contact us' page; we can then let you know who the best person is to talk to.
We would love to talk to you about this; please come along to church one Sunday and talk to Sarah Piper, about services of baptism, dedication or confirmation.
No – everyone is welcome, wherever you live and whether or not you’re a Christian.
In practical terms, we make every effort to be inclusive. We have two access doors at the front of church, one with a ramp for those in wheelchairs; we also operate a hearing loop system. Do get in touch with the church office for more details.
