A warm welcome
At St. Nicholas our mission is to be a welcoming and friendly Anglican church. We are a prayerful community, which reaches out to support the needs of the local area and beyond. Our congregation is a rich mixture of people - different ages, backgrounds and interests who come together to share their faith in God.
Welcome from Reverend Wes.
Hello and welcome to the website for Saint Nicolas Church. My name is Wes and I've been the Vicar here since 2009 when my wife, Nic, and I came to the parish. We have found it to be a privilege and a joy to be part of the caring, loving Saint Nicolas Church family and I would warmly encourage you to come along sometime and join us. You'll find lots of information about what goes on, and when, on this site.
Saint Nicolas is an inclusive church and there is always a friendly welcome for EVERYONE! But then of course as Vicar I would say that wouldn't I? You don't have to take my word for it though, here are some of the responses from a recent survey we undertook to see if the community felt that the church was offering worship for all, meeting needs, serving as it should and being a true reflection of the love of God which is for everyone.
"Saint Nicolas is a very positive church with a very welcoming
"Excellent church for children with a great Sunday school - JAM"
"Saint Nicolas has a 'user friendly' service."
"I've only been attending regularly since February 2018. I was made to feel most welcome by Reverend Wes and his team 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."
Nic and I are retiring on the 7th of October and it would be lovely to meet you before then. However, even when we are gone the rest of the open-hearted friendly church family will still be there to welcome you. Why not pay us a visit?
Blessings, Rev Wes
