St. Nicholas' Church is a lively family church with a heart for taking our faith out into the community and a vibrant range of activities through the week, especially for young people.

Our church services offer a range of opportunities from quiet traditional worship through to charismatic modern and our theology is most easily described as 'open evangelical'.

A typical Sunday morning family service will have modern lively worship, preaching to help people apply their faith to everyday life, opportunities for private and healing prayer and a family communion. Children and young people are really welcome and most weeks there is a Children’s Church, though on the first Sunday of each month most families go to St. Peter’s for their Café Church.

Our Wednesday morning and early Sunday services are quieter, more traditional and usually follow the appropriate Common Worship liturgy.

The monthly ‘Prayer and Praise’ service is a time for spending time with God in prayer and worship and sometimes this makes for a very energetic bouncy service, sometimes it’s quieter and reflective.

Each second Saturday we have a messy church for families with games and craft activities and we always finish with a shared meal.

Youth work is particularly important to the parish and there are activities for teenagers at least four days each week and these include: creative arts and drama, a ‘drop in café’ with food and games, helping at our community café and Messy Church, bible study, support with relationships and homework and youth worship events.

Every fourth Saturday we have a community café ‘Heavenly Delights’ where we aim to mix friendship and fellowship with food and all are welcome to come and join us.

There is a men's group that meet in the Plough Pub most Monday evenings from 8.00pm  and we run a foodbank in partnership with the other churches in Cramlington.
