Church of England Diocese of Peterborough Islip

About Us

St Nicholas church is part of the Benefice of Thrapston, Denford and Islip. It provides a more traditional and liturgical style of worship compared to the more relaxed and family friendly worship in Thrapston. However all the churches have an emphasis on clear bible teaching to help us grow as faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
