As well as the teaching during our Sunday services, at St Nick's we offer occasional courses, bible studies and other forms of Christian education, particularly during Advent and Lent.
For children we have Time at Ten Thirty during the Parish Mass on Sunday, and child-focused activites at major feasts. We admit children to Holy Communion from around age 7 after a programme of preparation.
focus is a discussion group that meets every few weeks in a parishioner's home for a discussion focused on a particular word - recent examples have included 'being', 'sacrifice' and 'truth'
We have run a series of four workshops on prayer, led by Fr Simon, Revd Ann, and Sr Patricia. The written materials for Fr Simon's introductory talk are here. Revd Ann's notes on prayer with the bible - Lectio Divina - are here. There's also a recording of Sr Patricia's talk on contemplative prayer - it's in three MP3 files because of file size limitations; in total it's about 35 minutes long (after editing out 5 minutes of silence for prayer in the final session). Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3
