From our vicar at this time of separation …
We are the church and it is time for us to see sacred spaces – those thin places, where heaven and earth touch one another – are present wherever we open our eye and hearts to God. God is not confined to a building or any particular place for that matter. Sacred places can be our garden, balcony, study, bedroom and anywhere we call on the name of God. So when you pray light a candle and continue to love, to care and to build our communities even while separated, because when one or two are gathered there the Creator is!

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.
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.
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.
A church that’s here for you
Welcome to the St Nicholas Church website! If you are looking for the perfect church, St Nicholas is probably not for you. But if you are excited about the possibility of joining 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, then you may find this a place you can be comfortable.
Come and help us as we explore together how to be Christians in 21st century Oxford.
If you have any questions or just want to get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. Contact details for the members of the team here on the Contacts page.
