Our Mission

Worship at St Nicholas reflects the needs of a broad spectrum of the parishioners. Our aim is to provide a place of shared pilgrimage, and to welcome those who would like to travel with us.


NEW! Bookstall Many rural churches now operate a bookstall tucked away somewhere in the building, the proceeds from sales going towards the ever increasing costs of maintenance and heating. We have now followed suit and invite you all to have a browse at any time the church is open.You'll find a mixture of books for all ages for just 50p a time.

You'll find our bookstall in the Molland chapel, opposite the quiet prayer corner.The stock will increase and turn over regularly so don't forget to come back and look again. And if you have any books to donate they'll be gladly received - just leave them in the box underneath, please. The existing wall safe alongside the glass doors at the church entrance will receive your payment. Happy reading!

Rev David Moulden retired on 31st December. As we learn to live wih Covid-19, looking forward to brighter days ahead we remember the following from the Gospel of Matthew:

‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart & with all your soul & with all your strength…love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.’
