JAM (Jesus and Me) is for primary age children, and meets in the church halls each Sunday morning. On the first Sunday of the month, which is a Holy Communion Service, the children go directly to JAM activities. On the second, third and fifth Sundays the children attend the first part of Morning Prayer and leave during the service to go to the hall. On the fourth Sunday there is a Family Service with the children in church for the full service and often participating in the worship activities.
SNYF is our Youth Fellowship which caters for young people of post primary School age. The group meets on a Sunday evening in the church halls and is a Bible based fellowship supporting the spiritual growth of the young people. SNYF also provides a range of outings and experiences for the young people and provides the opportunity for them to become involved in the wider youth programmes of the Diocese.
Senior Moments is a group for those over 50 years of age. The group meets on a monthly basis and as part of the activities also has a luncheon club. A wide variety of talks, demonstrations etc are provided for the membership which includes both parishioners and non-parishioners.
The church is blessed to have a bell tower and this group provides the sound of church bells ringing for the town. The group meets for practice on a Monday evening and locals often comment on the pleasant sound of bells that can be heard around the town.
The parish has a well-supported Bowling Club which meets in the church hall during the winter months which provides a recreational opportunity for those who attend. The club is attended by parishioners and others who are not members of the church. The club is involved in matches as participants in the local churches league.

These organisations operate under the wider umbrella of the relevant national organisations but are grounded in St. Nicholas’ church. They hold their meetings in the church halls and where relevant hold organisation related services or participate in other relevant services in the church.

20s - 30s Life Group
We want to be intentional in meeting regularly to be in fellowship with one other and study God’s word. We are going to start a life group which will meet every other Wednesday at 8pm in Nathan’s house. This will be a great opportunity for us to learn from one other and to support and encourage each other in our walks with Jesus.
We would really love everyone in this age group who comes to St Nicholas’ to come along to both The Gathering on 23rd October and sign up to join the Life Group starting on 3rd November. If you’re interested in coming along or want more information, contact Nathan through Facebook or email and he’ll be more than happy to chat with you!
