Hurst: St Nicholas


THRU Christ - Twyford, Hurst and Ruscombe

We are one church family spread across four churches: St Nicholas Hurst, St James Ruscombe, St Mary’s Twyford and United Reformed Church in Twyford.  Together, we seek to share God's love in our communities.

We each represent different strands of the Christian tradition, but share the same desire for ourselves and for other people: that we might come to know God better. 


St Nicholas Church is open for worship and Holy Communion.   Also, baptisms, weddings and funeral services.

Our parish of St Nicholas Hurst is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Oxford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO on email: [email protected] or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services."
