About Us

St Nicholas Church meets in a recently refurbished ancient building in a glorious setting, and we'd love for you to join us either in person or via our live st<span style="font-size: 1rem;">ream on our </span>Facebook<span style="font-size: 1rem;"> page.</span>

We're a church which takes the Bible seriously- believing it to be God's inspired and reliable Word- and so Bible teaching has a prime focus in all of our services. We are far from perfect, but with God's help, we do our best to live as disciples of Jesus.

Some of our regular congregation have been following Jesus for many years- others are still not sure what they believe. So wherever you are on your own journey of faith, we can assure you of a warm welcome, whether you come alone or with your family.

And in case you're interested... here's some info about the church building!

St Nicholas is the ancient Parish Church of Stevenage. The Saxon church on this site was replaced by a Norman one in about 1100 AD, but the only remaining part of this is the great, thick-walled flint tower. The church structure has been partially rebuilt so many times that it is a patchwork of nine centuries of local endeavour.

Inside St Nicholas Church there are many items of interest: the ancient stone font with medieval carved wooden cover; a magnificent carved reredos dating from around 1890, the medieval rood screen rediscovered in 1841, having been lost since the time of the Reformation; six 14th century misericords, and an impressive Victorian organ.

In 1998 the Parishes of St Nicholas and Graveley were brought together to form a united benefice, the Rector of St Mary's also being the Rector of St Nicholas Stevenage.
