Facilities and features
Modern facilities, including an accessible toilet, are available in the hall adjoining the church.
Available in the accessible toilet.
Please park behind the church hall rather than along the road at the side of the church where there are houses. There is usually space to park on Whetstone Road as well, but again, please be considerate of our neighbours.
On Sundays or at busy events, please leave the small parking area in front of the church for those with more limited mobility.
A portable ramp is available for access into the church or the hall. Within the church, built-in ramps can be unfolded to lead from the pews to the altar rail.
Music and Worship
St Nicholas's is pleased to house a single-manual Bevington organ which formerly belonged to the Anglican congregation in the Royal Herbert Hospital chapel. It has been suggested that Florence Nightingale may have played it there, as she was closely associated with that hospital and a proficient musician. The organ seems to have been built without pedals and the pedal board, permanently coupled to the keyboard, is presumed to have been added in the late 1970s, when the instrument was moved to St Nicholas's. Despite its small size, it is admirably suited both to leading congregational singing and to quiet accompaniment. (See National Pipe Organ Register: T00413.)
