Church of England Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham Bawtry with Austerfield

About Us

St. Nicholas is a growing church that welcomes a wide range of people to a variety of services and events.  Worship style ranges from Celebrations using modern songs, led by a music group to Evensong using the 1662 prayer book. Our regular service pattern is -

1st Sunday All Together at St Nics - a family friendly worship service with a mixture of music group and organ led worship

2nd Sunday Holy Communion - with a mixture of music group and organ led worship

3rd Sunday 'Lite Bite' at the Church Hall - an informal service including breakfast, crafts and games, a short thought and prayer

4th Sunday Holy Communion - with a mixture of music group and organ led worship

On the fourth Tuesday of each month there is "Messy Church" for primary age children and their carers, with crafts, a short time in church and a cooked tea together. This is from 4pm to 6pm and other family members are welcome to join us as they return from work. Every Tuesday morning there is a coffee fellowship in the church hall, which provides a friendly environment for all between 10am and 12 noon. A number of small groups meet regularly, and the Alpha course is run annually. The church is an active member of Bawtry Churches Together, and engages with the community in a number of ways.

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">We operate a Dress Agency “Cherish” on Bawtry High Street, as a prophetic action and means of engaging with the community. This incidentally raises money for the church and other charities We have regular prayer times on a Tuesday morning in church, a Thursday morning in Cherish and once a month on a Monday evening.  Prayer is at the heart of all we do.</span>

Our mission statement is -

 “We Gather as Christ’s people, valuing everyone’s contribution; Growing in our faith, love and service; Going into the world as disciples.” or briefly "We gather to grow and to go”
