Diocesan Call to Pray and Give

We are sincerely grateful for your individual responses to this <span style="font-size: 1rem;">special one-off gift to help us at St Nicholas meet our ever </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">rising annual commitments. We were facing a deficit of £6433.</span>

As this news sheet goes to print, the total gifts received amount to £4460. That together with the sale so far of our annual draw tickets of £1100 makes a grand total of £5560. Despite the challenges we have all faced this year, we are truly beginning to see the green shoots of new life, so let us rejoice and be glad, giving thanks to God for the abundance of his blessings.
