St Nicolas Centre is now OPEN !   

The grand opening celebration of the St Nicolas Centre took place on Sept 22nd.  Despite some seriously grotty weather, Bishop Rt. Rev Andrew Proud and the Mayor of Earley Cllr Brian Wedge cut the ribbon. We hosted over 30 church and community group stalls, served untold numbers of teas and coffees and plates of Indian street food, and welcomed 300-400 people through the doors. The Church and Centre were buzzing with life. And there was such a warm atmosphere throughout the day.

A retired vicar living here in Reading wrote:

Wow! This was a really wonderful occasion. It was great to see such a wide range of people there and involved. The premises do look very good and today seemed to show that St N is really a resource for the community. It was also good to see how the church explained its work and message in very accessible ways – the remembrance candles, the cards about pastoral care, the leaflets on weddings and christenings. It felt alive and really a day of hope. It all came together beautifully and promises well for the future.
Having been involved in church/community activity, I can imagine that there has been a great deal of planning prayer and sheer hard work behind this. But today was harvest time!
….. and the Ukuladies were a delight!

The Mayor of Earley sent us a message as well: Just a quick mail to say how honoured I was to be invited to the Grand Opening on Saturday and what a wonderful day it was. Certainly the comments I heard showed what a superb centre you have created for the community and I hope that it is grows into the community hub you envisaged. Again Many thanks, Brian
