The Parish Church of St Nicholas has been a place of Christian worship for over 1000 years – a place for communal and private prayer and for marking key moments in the life of the community.
St Nicholas’ belongs to the whole community – those who live and work in the area and also those from much further afield. We welcome all who come to St Nicholas’, whether it is to worship, to seek a quiet moment, or simply to soak up the history and sense of continuity of this ancient building and its surroundings.
You do not have to attend our services to want to see this church and churchyard well maintained and handed on to future generations.
As you can imagine, the cost of looking after this heritage is substantial and your support is much needed. The past couple of wet winters have added to the need for major repairs to the bell tower and the interior of the church needs repainting at a cost of around £60,000 !
Please help us maintain the ancient building and churchyard of St Nicholas’ Church by becoming a ‘Friend of St Nicholas’. For £30 a year, or £300 for life membership, Friends will be kept in touch with a regular newsletter, magazine and invitations to social events.
It is only with your generosity that we will be able to hand on to future generations the wonderful heritage that we enjoy today. Therefore, to join the Friends, or offer a one-off donation, please print and complete this form.
