Saint Nicolas Church has been at the heart of the village community in Forest Hill for nearly 900 years.  It is a small church with Norman origins, a 19th century pipe organ, and wheelchair-accessible toilet.

The usual pattern of services is as follows, but for up to date information on changes, see "Calendar of forthcoming services and events" under "Services and Events":-

First Sunday: Parish Communion using Common Worship at 11:00am

Second Sunday: Evening Prayer with sung canticles, using the Book of Common Prayer, at 4:00pm (6:00pm during British Summer Time)

Third Sunday: Morning Prayer using the Book of Common Prayer at 11:00am

Fourth Sunday: Joint Service held at one of the 4 parishes in the Benefice in rotation at 10:00am (see calendar)
