Welcome to St Nicholas, a church at the heart of

the community with a heart for the community.

We welcome people of all ages to come and celebrate the
love of God, encourage and support one another as we grow in the Christian faith and to reach out and share the good news of Jesus.



Welcome to the St Nicholas website, especially if this is your first time. We hope you find all the information you need here, but if not please do contact us.
We would also love to welcome you to our main service at 10am every Sunday, and to the other services we hold - for more information please look at our ‘Services’ page.

Just to let you know a bit about myself, I am married to Isabel, and we have three children. Before moving here in the summer of 2016, I served for four years as curate in the parish of St John’s, Welling. I originally trained as a modern languages teacher, and worked in both secondary and further education. Different members of our family at different times have enjoyed, and sometimes still enjoy – good coffee, cycling, Bluewater, riding the DLR, Star Wars, Hula Hoops (the spinning, not the edible kind), occasional trips to The Valley, and playing the guitar. Although not necessarily in that order!

We are all excited to see what God has in store for us here in Orpington, and we look forward to meeting you.
