New Year, new Start!

If you are looking for inspiration for your New Year's resolution, look no further....

1) Treat the family to some quality time together at Messy Church.

2) Join the Start! course (beginning in January) to discover more about Christian faith for yourself.
It begins on Saturday 11 January at 9.30am and you can find more details on the church website or pick up a leaflet at St Nicolas.


...from all of us at Messy Church St Nicolas.

Our first Messy Church of 2014 will be on Sunday 26th January and alongside the usual activities we're inviting everyone to bring a favourite family dish with them to share with everyone else for the meal.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Christmassy things

We had a lovely Messy Church Christmas Special on Sunday 15th December with lots of great activities and a performance by our very own Messy Church Gospel Choir. For another chance to see them perform why not come along this Sunday morning (22nd December)  at 10.30am when there will be a nativity play, some festive carols and a few special gospel choir items.

Then on Christmas Eve we have our ever-popular Family Carols and Crib Service at 4pm. It is a short, lively and sometimes chaotic service in which we re-tell the Christmas story as we gather by the crib. We sing some of our favourite carols and try not to get too excitable as we wait for Christmas Day!

Of course there is a special service on Christmas Day too at 10.30am - ideal for families and no better way of celebrating Jesus' birthday.

Whatever you are doing this festive season we pray that it is a healthy and happy time for you and those you love. We hope to see you again in 2014 - our first Messy Church of the New Year will be on Sunday 26 January at 4pm - come along and bring your friends.
