For where two or three gather in my name,
there am I with them.

Matthew 18:20

Monthly Services

Our main service is at 10am
on Sunday Morning, following
the pattern below:

1st Sunday
Informal Communion

2nd Sunday
All Age Worship

3rd Sunday

4th Sunday
Morning Prayer

Here at St. Nicholas we have a range of services aiming to blend together the best of traditional and modern music and worship styles.


We try to shape the services in such a way that allows people to come closer to God through worship, prayer, communion, spoken word, teaching and more.


All Age Worship

Services where children and adults come in together for the whole service with a mixture of hymns and modern songs.


Morning Praise

The whole church family meets together for the first few minutes before the children leave for Kids Club and Pathfinders (Sunday School). Similar style of service to the All Age Worship, but the teaching is for adults.



On the first and third Sundays we celebrate communion at 10am. We use a mixture of traditional and modern forms of worship and music. Kids Club and Pathfinders run for the young people, but parents are welcome to bring children back into the service for the receiving of communion. Children and young people will return to the church service on the first Sunday each month in time for communion.


Book of Common Prayer communion

On Sundays when there is no 10am communion service, there is a short 9am service using the Book of Common Prayer. This allows you to take part in communion every week if it is an important part of your worship.



An area is available in church with toys and books for the under 3's.


Children and young people

KIDS CLUB is for children aged 3 - 10 years. Pathfinders for young people in school Year 6 and above. These groups start in church and then go for their
own age-appropriate sessions, which include Bible story and discussion, worship, prayer and craft activities. They return to church at the end of the Service to share with the congregation what they have been doing.
