Groundbreaking News! Sunday 15 October 2017

Join us on Sunday 15 October 2017 as we break ground at the start of construction of the St. Nicolas Centre.

We’ll have a special service at 10am to mark the occasion and then some dignitaries will join us to put the first spade in the ground.


We’ll then share a lunch together

And finally, we’ll have a Prayer Walk when we will walk all around our parish, stopping to pray as we go.

What a day. Mark it in your diary now and join in with all or bits of this momentous day.

Singing in the Sunshine and Summer BBQ

Thank you to everyone who came to our Singing in the Sunshine service and Summer BBQ. The sun certainly shone greatly, as we tunefully sung some of our favourite hymns accompanied by our wonderful and talented musicians.

A big thank you to the team who put this event together and helped make the day so lively and fun.
