St. Nicholas Church serves the whole community of Newport in worship and very special occasions throughout the year:- June/July Civic Sunday; November - Remembrance Sunday; Carol Sing - after Newport Christmas light switch on; December - Newport Community/Civic Carol Service.
As well as serving the town, we worship week by week as the people of God in St. Nicholas.
Our main Worship is on a Sunday at 10:30am and lasts a good hour. It is a warm, friendly time of worship with Holy Communion. Fellowship, coffee and biscuits follow in Church.
There is a mixture of music with both organ and music group with clear teaching. We use Common Worship liturgy.
We always know that God is with us and meeting with us.
On Wednesday at 10:30am we have a quiet reflective Worship of Said Communion, alternating between the BCP and Common Worship. This lasts about 30 minutes and is followed by coffee and biscuits.
Details of these services are shown on our Events Page

St. Nicholas Church is a most beautiful place to grace a baptism, Wedding or Funeral.
There is something of the love, peace and beauty of God's goodness present.

Through the academic year, Collective Worship is led by the Church in our Junior school fortnightly.
We travel with Jesus through one of the Gospels each year, covering all four Gospels over a four year period.
The School comes to Worship in St. Nicholas at the beginning and end of each term to thank God, learn together,
and look forward to the future and new things!
We are also closely partnered with Newport Infants school where we hold a Messy Church in the school once a term.
The Song Squad from the school are regular contributors to Civic and Community special occasions in Church.
Collective worship is also taken in other schools in town.
St. Nicholas is a Church that is easy to belong to, and always open to new people joining us and participating.
There is a most beautiful almost tangible presence of God the Father in St. Nicholas.
Even when empty, you can't help but encounter God so do spent time of reflection with Him in our church..
Through all the activities we seek to meet people where they are and help them to discover the Lord,
to grow in him and allow him to renew their lives through the activity of the Holy Spirit.
The Lord is easy to "find" in St. Nicholas.
You and your family are most welcome.
