Keeping in touch

During this national lockdown, several of our church family members are staying at home which is entirely understandable. It is important that we keep in touch with everyone and so the Vicar and members of the PCC will resume regular phone calls to anyone who is not able to attend worship in person or via Zoom. This notice sheet is available on our website at “A Church Near You St Nicholas Fleetwood.”

Financial Position at the year end

The financial accounts for St Nicholas for the last twelve months have been finalised and approved by the PCC. We have been blessed beyond our imagination and are sincerely thankful to everyone who has stepped up and given regularly and sacrificially throughout these unprecedented times. Thank you for enabling the continuation of ministry in this part of Fleetwood.
