St Nicholas is part of the Church of Scotland (a Reformed Presbyterian Church) and the basis of our faith is the Word of God as contained in the Bible.
We believe in one God - the Father , the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that God is present in the world and is seeking to enrich our lives through knowing Jesus Christ, his Son.
Our aim is to follow the teaching and example of Jesus Christ through
whose life, death and resurrection we come to know, love and worship God. We
seek to do this through love and practical care for each other and those we
encounter in our daily lives.
we observe to sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. We baptise believing adults and the children of Christian families. Christians of any denomination are welcome to Holy Communion.
We believe in the ministry of all God's people so the parish minister is often part of the ministerial team including assistant ministers, deacons, readers, elders and other church members. in addition to leading worship the ministerial team provides pastoral care to all who seek it. In this way the Church provides care and resources for the community.
The service is a traditional Church of Scotland service incorporating hymns, prayers, Scripture readings, choir anthems and it focuses on the preaching the Word. beginning at 11.00am, it lasts an hour or so. A children’s talk is included in the early part of the service following which there is separate Sunday School and crèche provision while the adult service is on.
There is normally a cup of tea / coffee served after the morning service which is a useful time to meet and chat informally.
If you are a visitor, you are especially welcome. There is a visitor's book at the front door of the church, and we will value the addition of your details.
