Open Garden in Hightown – Sunday 10th June from 2.00pm

Come and relax in the to an Open Garden in Hightown on Sunday 10th June from 2pm onwards.  We are raising awareness and funding for the organ restoration.  Our famous Normand & Beard is at the musical heart of church services and concerts and is in great need of some help.

Without this wonderful renowned organ, our Adult & Youth Choirs along with the St. Nicholas’ Singers would not be able to perform with the superb musical backing enjoyed by all over the years.  

Tickets £3 are available in advance by emailing: or at the door on the day.  We look forward to seeing you.

By car or by train to Hightown Station, then 5 mins walk

Le Tour de Deanerie

2018.05 Le Tour de Deanerie (2)

Celebrate Pentecost with a tour around the churches of Sefton North Deanery, by bike, by car or on foot!  A response to the Archbishop’s “Thy Kingdom Come” prayer initiative, the tour will take in the 14 churches of the deanery together with Redgate School (Holy Trinity’s church plant in Formby) and The StoryHouse (St Luke’s “fresh expression” coffee shop in Crosby) and the Ancient Chapel in the grounds of St. Andrew’s Church in Maghull. 

Well done to Ravi and Peter Warren for completing their 35 mile cycle tour last Saturday.  Here’s Ravi having a brief stop at St. Andrew’s Chapel in Maghull, the oldest chapel in Sefton North Deanery. 




Church in School

St. Nicholas’ School is a Church of England primary school which is rooted deeply in Christian values. The church and the school work closely together at the heart of the community. Many parents believe these Christian values are important as their children grow and, whilst the children learn them in school, church is the place where families can learn and grow together.

We realise that because everyone leads busy lives and there are so many activities for children that happen on a Sunday morning, the traditional time for church on a Sunday morning no longer works for many.

St. Nicholas’ School and St. Nicholas’ Church are therefore considering offering something different. We would like to do Church in School.

So that we can test the waters and see if this is a viable idea, we’d like to ask you what you think. We are hoping to appoint someone to lead it and for it to be in school on a weekly basis. We’d like to build a team to help plan and prepare the services for adults and children together. Like the way that the children plan for their class worship.

Please could you take the time to answer the following questions on the questionnaire, print and and return the form to School asap.   CHURCH IN SCHOOL
