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, as there's plenty of space for everyone who wants to come. Do come early for a free coffee outside from 10.15am – groups of up to 30 are now allowed! We are trying this not in the churchyard but supplied by Heni at the Barge Café, by the towpath just near the canal bridge, towards the school. The aim is to talk to one another and anyone else around – to whom we will also offer a free coffee!
When joining us in church, please remember the hands-face-space rules:
If you come to St Nicholas' in person, please remember the current hands-face-space protocols:
Bring your own mask to wear on the way into church. If you wish to go mask free, please sit on the North (left) side of the main aisle. The pews to the South (right) of the main aisle are reserved for those who wish to wear masks.
Sanitise your hands as you enter and leave
Sit in the designated spaces, which are marked with green ticks
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 if you choose to have your camera on. Mute your mic and sing as loud as you like when the onsite congregation are listening quietly to live or recorded music! 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, but at this stage we are catering for children separately outside from 10.45-11.45am. For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the Youth and Children's Groups page.
Our current aim is not to have multiple services in different styles but to express our unity as the People of God by all joining together, bearing with one another’s preferences and including a blend of musical and liturgical styles. About twice a month we share the Lord’s Supper, and we use – quite flexibly – the forms of worship authorised in the Church of England’s Common Worship.
