We have a range of different services at St Nicolas. Everyone is welcome, just come along. Please feel free to come and try, dip in and out, on line or in person.

We are a hybrid church, this means we treat the digital space as an equally valid place for worship, fellowship, prayer, discipleship and teaching.
We have large print booklets, hymn books and Bibles if you need them.

Communion Services

At St Nicolas, Holy Communion (the sharing of bread and wine), is at the heart of our worship and everyone is welcome to receive. Some people have the bread and not the wine, which is still full communion. We do have gluten free bread available. You may prefer to come forward for a blessing. If you prefer to remain in your seat, that is fine as well.

Sunday 8am Holy Communion: (45 mins) In person only
This is a quiet, gentle service without hymns, with space and stillness, prayers and a talk.

Sunday 10am Holy Communion (75 mins) Live streamed and in person
This is a busier service, with songs, prayers and a talk. There are resources for younger people as well.

You can join us in person, or via YouTube. Please see our website for details here. The service is available for 2 weeks online. Please stay afterwards for refreshments and a chat.

There is prayer support available after every 10am service. You’ll find people ready to listen and pray with you confidentially, for whatever’s on your mind.
