Sunday Services


Our main church service is every Sunday at 10:45 am and we meet in person as well as on Zoom. We're no longer operating a booking system. Do come early for a free coffee in church from 10.15am.

If you come to St Nicholas' in person, please be mindful of hands-face-space:

  • Bring your own mask to wear at all times in church.
  • The pews in the North (left) aisle are reserved for those who wish remain socially-distanced (spaces in these pews are marked with green ticks and red crosses)
  • Sanitise your hands as you enter and leave
  • Follow special instructions for safe participation in Communion services
For those who are not able to come back to church just yet, and for any who are self-isolating/shielding or housebound, we are continuing to stream the service via Zoom. You'll be able to see and hear what's going on in church and we'll be able to see and hear you at one or two points during the service if you choose to have your camera on. Mute your mic and sing as loud as you like! The meeting ID is 894 5345 2295; there is no password but there will be a waiting room when you join.

We believe that we are God’s people that he has called out of darkness into his wonderful light to declare his praises. Our aim is to hear God speaking through the Bible, understand what it means for our lives and encourage one another. We sing a mix of traditional hymns and modern songs, pray and often have a few minutes to hear from a member of the congregation about their faith, or get an update from one of our mission partners. The service lasts around an hour, and the first 15-20 minutes are normally aimed at all ages, including children, who then go out to Junior Church groups. For more information, please visit the Youth and Children's Groups page.

The morning service aims to be for everyone, with a blend of traditional and modern styles. On the first Sunday of the month we also have an evening service using the Book of Common Prayer (1662) and older hymns, with a different sermon so you can come to both services on those days. 

About twice a month (see the Church Calendar) we share the Lord’s Supper, and we use – quite flexibly – the forms of worship authorised in the Church of England’s Common Worship.

We meet at:
Church Close

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those thinking of visiting us, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

St Nicholas’ meets at the parish church by the canal bridge for our Sunday Service starting at 10:45am. We meet in church for coffee from 10:15. We are no longer operating a booking system, there's plenty of space for anyone who wants to come.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Parking: You can park (free) for up to 3 hours at the George pub next to the church. If you're not visiting the pub, it is courteous to use the right-hand side of the car park.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a disabled toilet available.

Home Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have two groups that meet on Zoom on Tuesday or Wednesday. Check out Home Groups to find out more, or we can put you in touch with a home group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
