Our Style

The style of weekly Eucharistic services is deliberately more informal than in the Parish Church of St Paul, to provide a variety of styles across the Parish to suit a wider range of backgrounds and preferences. However, the congregation is drawn largely from Emmbrook. Lay participation is a key feature of St Nicholas’ character, both in worship and wider Parish events.


Easter Altar Fall at St Nicholas


From the outset, St Nicholas’ was set up to “look and feel” like a worshipping community in its own right, supported by the Parish, but with its own governance and a large measure of control over its own finances. But a number of Parish-wide initiatives have their origins in St Nicholas’ activities, including “First Steps” (responding to a specific request from the community made during our 2001 Mission) and the Wednesday morning “House Mass”. 


"St Nicks" meets in available hire space in Emmbrook - currently the village hall; and because we rent, we do not have to spend time and effort on caring for a building. 


Lively housegroups play an important role in our community - and most members of St Nicholas are part of a group, and other members of the parish also attend.
