We Will Remember Them

Like many other congregations throughout the United Kingdom, the St Nicholas congregation suffered losses of those serving in the armed services who made the ultimate sacrifice during the First and Second World Wars

From A Spark To A Flame

From A Spark To A Flame book coverWednesday 1st June 2011 was a significant day for us. It was then that we were able to collect the final copies of From a Spark to a Flame from the printer, thus bringing to an end our inspiring but truly humbling journey through one hundred years of St Nicholas Parish Church. The book is an expression of our deep gratitude to God, and is dedicated to those who, in the beginning, ignited the flame, and also to those who, during these hundred years, have kept it burning.
Many people, from the congregation and beyond, have contacted us in a variety of ways to convey their thoughts on our publication. We wish to express our sincere thanks for these messages, and want all to know how much we appreciate them.
