Sunday Morning Children’s Activities
Our family service is relaxed and particularly suited to those who favour less traditional styles of worship. There is often an activity for children, sometimes with them joining together for their own group for some special activities or a Godly Play session.
Singing With A New Spirit is Tuesday morning group for people living with dementia and their carers. Singing is thought to be great for brain activity, mental health and memory so this is a great ‘feel good’ group and you don’t need to have special musical abilities to take part.
SNAPS is a new group for adults with additional needs. There is a rolling programme of music, arts and crafts, cooking and other activities and each session finishes with a drink and light lunch.
We have a thriving gospel choir that meets seasonally to learn new material and take part in some of the main church festival services such as Christmas and Easter. It is open to all ages and abilities and is usually accompanied by plenty of laughter and fun.
Messy Church is a creative way of being church for families. It normally takes place on the first Sunday of the month and offers an exciting programme of craft, games, music, story and food! It is about helping families to explore and express faith together in a safe environment.
Word & Worship
We host Word & Worship one evening every fortnight. The programme is a mixture of teaching input, discussion, sung worship and refreshments, all in a relaxed environment. It’s open to all.
Traditional Robed Choir
We have a strong choral heritage at St Nicolas and our robed choir leads the musical element of worship at our traditional Sunday services. Our church is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music and we’re always ready to welcome new members of all ages.
Some of the groups and activities that take place on site welcome voluntary help.
To volunteer for a specific role with a church group or activity we would expect you to have been a worshipping member of the church for a minimum of 6 months before inviting you to take part in any voluntary responsibilities – this is so that we can get to know you and help you to settle in! If you would then like to offer to use your time, talents and energies to help in some way you would be invited to take part in our Safer Recruitment process.
Please contact the church about volunteering in any of the church group slisted above. For the groups listed below, that take place in the Church Centre please contact the groups directly.
At the moment St Nicolas Church employs 4 part-time members of staff. At the moment there are no job vacancies with St Nicolas Church. Please check here again at a future time for updates.
