St Nicholas' Church is....


  • a Church of England Church and we hold orthodox Anglican beliefs subscribing to the historical creeds which speak of our belief in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as well as the 39 Articles with their reminders of the great Reformation principles of 'Christ Alone, Scripture Alone, Faith Alone.'

(You can find links to the texts of the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed and the 39 Articles at www.anglicansonline.org/basics/what_believe.html)

We are also influenced by the Charismatic Renewal Movement which transformed so much of Evangelical Anglicanism from the 1970s until the present day through the teaching of such people as the late Rev'd Canon David Watson.  As such we believe that as in New Testament times the Holy Spirit of God is still fully active in God's Church, empowering, healing, ministering and inspiring God's people.
