Wells-next-the-Sea: St Nicholas

Welcome to our A Church Near You pages. We're currently constructing a dedicated website for the church so for now there will be information on both platforms with links back and forth. We will shortly be publishing a photo gallery for 2019 and an update on the Restoration Appeal. For more information and our latest exciting news and for details of how you can support us please go to Thunderbolts and Fire.


The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close...

In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice and our church buildings will be closed. However, this does not mean that we will be ceasing to pray and worship. Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in our buildings. 

Our pattern of prayer will continue and Revd Brenda will live-stream a service from the Rectory on Sundays at 11.00am and Wednesdays at 10.00am and there will be additional live-streams in Holy Week. Live-streams and recordings of previous services can be watched by clicking here: Youtube Channel, St Nicholas Wells.

Pew sheets for our Sunday services can be downloaded from the links on the homepage of our main website - please click on this link to be taken there.

In addition we have set up a 12 hour prayer chain each Friday with a team signing up for 30 minute slots between 7.30am and 7.30pm. Let us know if you would like to join in by e-mailing Revd Brenda. 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.

And remember, do protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.

The parish of Wells-next-the-Sea: St Nicholas is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Norwich’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
