Over the centuries, St Nicholas’ Church has provided a place for communal and private prayer and for marking key moments in the life of the community – for rejoicing in new life at the baptism of children, for celebrating marriage, and for commending departed loved ones to the mercy and love of God. St Nicholas’ belongs to the whole community – all those who live and work in the area and also those from much further afield so whether you come here to worship, seek a quiet moment, or simply soak up the sense of continuity of these ancient surroundings, you are very welcome.
Although it has stood for over a thousand years, St Nicholas’ is still striving today to be a worshipping, caring and loving Church, serving God and His people. We try to blend the best aspects of traditional and modern worship – our choir particularly enjoys singing music from the Renaissance, yet there are also modern services just for children and families, and even one for pets! We also try to warmly welcome newcomers, explain what it going on throughout services and hope to meet you afterwards over coffee and a biscuit.
