At St Nicolas, Holy Communion, the sharing of bread and wine, is at the heart of our worship and everyone who would like to receive is welcome to.

On Sundays

8am  Communion: a said service with a talk (45 mins)

This is a smaller, quieter service with more space and stillness, prayers and a talk.  It is friendly and open to all.  It is a wonderful start for those who have a busy day ahead.  There are no hymns and no children’s groups at this service.  About once a month we share Fairtrade coffee and croissants after the service.

10am  Holy Communion (75 mins)

This is a livelier service, with songs, traditional and modern, prayers, and a talk.  It is family friendly with children’s and young people’s groups on most Sundays during term time. Click to find out more.

There is always prayer support available after every 10am service.  You’ll find two people ready to listen and pray with you, confidentially, for whatever’s on your mind.

After the service there are Fairtrade refreshments and lots of people stay to chat.


For festivals such as Easter and on some special Sundays, it’s Everyone Together in church for a service that is lively, engaging and suitable for Everyone and that includes the sharing of communion Together.  Our children and young people’s groups don’t meet these weeks.

Additionally, on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 4pm, we host People Prayers and Potatoes Messy Church (PPP). A relaxed service with art and craft, prayers, story and song, followed by a (free) baked potato tea.

During the Week

Morning Prayer from Tuesday – Friday at 9am

We start the day with prayers for the world, our community and the day that lies ahead. Please do join us.

Mondays from 9.30am Noah’s Ark @ St Nic’s

Prayers, songs and playtime for pre-school children and their carers. Click here for more details.

Wednesdays at 11.00am Communion and Coffee

A communion service with songs and a talk, and a friendly group of people that stay around for coffee (or tea!), biscuits and a good old chinwag.  Everyone is welcome to this service, but it’s particularly good for older people.
