Welcome from Reverend Philip Chew
Hello and welcome to the website for Saint Nicholas Church. I became Vicar in November 2019 after my wife Janice and I moved here from Wales. Having stated that, we are Lancashire people born and bred. We have found St Nicholas's Church to be very welcoming with many organisations contributing to its life and ministry. There is something for everybody of all ages. The many groups are listed on this website and you will be most welcome to come along. We endeavour to be inclusive and supportive of the wider community of Wrea Green.
In a recent survey the community was asked if the church was offering worship for all, meeting people's needs and serving as it should by being a true reflection of the love of God which is for everyone. Here are a few of the comments received.
"Saint Nicholas is a very positive church with a very welcoming atmosphere."
"Excellent church for children with a great Sunday school - JAM"
"Saint Nicholas has a 'user friendly' service."
"I've only been attending regularly since February 2018. I was made to feel most welcome by everyone to such an extent that I now feel at ease attending the services."
"The congregation feel like a family, and the support from them is wonderful in times of trouble."
"I've been attending for a couple of years now and have been impressed and grateful for the kindness and inclusiveness of the people at the church, to me that really speaks the message of God's love."
The Blackburn Diocese 2026 Vision's message is 'Healthy Churches Transforming Communities'. St Nicholas Church is endeavouring to do this.
