FAQs

  • I've never been to church; what is the service like?

    The services at St Nicholas are designed to be visitor friendly, so we regularly explain what we're doing at points during the service, and why we're doing it. You don't have to know anything before you visit, or bring anything. The services mostly contain a mixture of songs, a reading or two from the Bible, prayers and a short talk on a passage from the Bible. The service also contains a confession and creed (statement of beliefs), which you are welcome to join in with as you wish. The evening service is slightly less formal as well as being smaller in terms of the number of people who come. See the What to Expect on Sundays page for more info.

  • Do you take collections?

    We don't take collections during the service. We don’t expect visitors to give to the work of St Nicholas; church family members can click here for information on giving.

  • What are the arrangements for children and babies?

    Take a look at this page for what happens for children and babies on Sundays.

  • How do I know the leaders are 'safe'?

    We take the safeguarding of both children and adults very seriously. Every group leader has been through a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check at enhanced level and attends annual training. For more information on our Safeguarding policy, please contact Claire Tagg (who is in charge of Safeguarding at St Nicholas) through the Church Office.

  • What about Health & Safety?

    We take Health & Safety seriously at St Nicholas and have developed a church-specific policy in order that people and things in our community are kept as safe as possible. Please get in touch with our Health & Safety officers, Andy and Antonia Jackson, through the Church Office, if you have any questions or comments. 

  • I'm not sure what I believe; do you have courses for people like me?

    Yes, and we'd love to talk to you about them. Check out the 'Christianity Explored' page.

  • Do you run the Alpha course?

    No, but we run a similar course for those thinking through the claims of Christianity, called 'Christianity Explored'. Have a look at the 'Christianity Explored' page for more details.

  • What do you believe?

  • How do I contact the Rector?

  • How do I know who to contact at church about various things?

    The best way to do this is to ring the Church Office or fill in the form on the 'Contact us' page; we can then let you know who the best person is to talk to.

  • How do I find out about having my child baptized or confirmed?

    We would love to talk to you about this; please come along to church one Sunday and talk to CJ, the Rector, about services of baptism, dedication or confirmation.

  • What happens at St Nicholas during the week?
