The Twenty-First Century

This story, which began in the seventh century, continues today. We are proud that the church is still standing and, it seems, in a better state of repair than on a number of occasions over the centuries. We must remember, though, that our work as Christians is concerned with preparing the future rather than preserving the past. Though we are committed to keeping the historic features of St Nicholas in good condition, we are also committed to ensuring that the Church evolves as a building “fit for purpose” for worshippers in the present and in the years to come.
