Welcome!

We are seeking to be an ‘inside-out’ church which focuses on:

Prayer & Telling the Story              Creation                   Community                  Peace

Come and See

Come and See is an invitation to everyone and anyone who feels adrift in this pandemic, whether or not they know anything about the Christian faith.

On Friday evenings during Lent, we are hosting a safe space to ask questions and explore the Christian Faith.

A different option also will be available in the form of a weekly handout sheet exploring these questions.

There will also be the possibility to have a mentor with whom you would be able to discuss these sorts of questions during this time possibly combining with either of the first two options above.

If you want to know more just get in touch with our Vicar Skye vicar@stnicholasmarston.org.uk. All are welcome and no strings attached!

Lent this year is from Feb 17th (Ash Wednesday) to April 3rd (Easter Saturday)

Bible in a Year

A group of people at St Nicks have started reading the Bible in a year – some are doing it using Audible (which is around 15 mins day listening – David Suchet reading) and some are actually reading The One Year Bible.  If you would like to join in or just see what people are discussing, we have set up a Whatsapp group for this and if you would like to join please contact Tess Nowell on tess@nowell.org.uk or Jane Burd on janeburd0@gmail.com

Check out our YouTube site for our Lay Minister Joel’s helpful short introductions to the books of the Bible as we meet them through the year. Click here for Joel’s BIble in a Year Book Introductions on YouTube

PEACE

We are growing in our understanding of what it means to be a ‘peace-making’ church that is welcome to all and what it means to love one another.

Some prayers for this time of uncertainty …

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

A church that’s here for you

We are a group of men, women and children (of all ages) who are fascinated by Jesus, and want to make sense of 21st century life by trying to follow him.

Come and help us as we explore together how to be Christians in this place and at this time.

If you have any questions or just want to get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. For contact details of members of the team – please click here for the Contacts Page.
