Come and Celebrate Christmas with us this year...

There really is something for everyone.

If you rarely come to church please know you are very welcome.

There is plenty for families to enjoy together this Christmas, especially the PPP Chrstingle on 9th December – come and make your own, put sweets on your Christingle and sing some carols and say some prayers together.

The Carols, Crib and Craft on Christmas Eve will also be great fun with lots for children of all ages to do and a reminder of the Christmas story.

Carols by Candlelight on 16th does exactly what it says on the tin and Midnight mass on Christmas Eve is always beautiful, moving and a great preparation for Christmas Day.

Or come and enjoy the excitement of Christmas day itself. The service on Christmas day is for all the family, include pulling a cracker and sharing a glass of something nice with a mince pie afterwards.

Caring for People

Christmas can be a challenging time for some; at St Nicolas we seek to support each other through the ups and downs of life. If you would welcome a chat or a visit or with someone from our Care Team, or if you would like to receive home communion or would simply like someone to pray with you please  call the Parish Office on 0118 966 9080 – we would love to help. Read More…
