ENQUIRIES

BAPTISMS

For enquiries about Baptism please contact the Parish Administrator, (020 8467 0196), parishchurch@btconnect.com  

The Church of England is organised in parishes and we always encourage couples to seek baptism in the parish where they live. You can check if St Nicholas is your parish church by going to the Church of England web site www.churchofengland.org and entering your postcode in the box on the right hand side of the home page.  

We work hard to keep up with requests for baptism from those who live within our parish or who already a have a clear connection with St Nicholas therefore we would encourage you to seek baptism where you live and hope that you might establish a fruitful link with your own parish church. We are also trying to be fair to the Priest-in-Charge of your parish.

However, if you would like to know more about establishing a connection with St Nicholas do contact the Parish Administrator.

FUNERALS

The church is available for a funeral service. It would usually be followed by a short committal service at either a cemetery or a crematorium. A service in church allows people as much space as they want to express thanksgiving without the pressure of other bereaved families waiting their turn. If you would like to hold a funeral service in church, please speak to the funeral director you employ and they can arrange this with us. St. Nicholas clergy are also available to take the entire service at the crematorium or cemetery if you so wish.  Please bear in mind that the full-time clergy have Friday as their day off.CHRISTIAN FAITH

From time to time we run courses that seek to explain the Christian Faith.   If you wish to talk to the Rector or Curate about matters of faith, personal concerns or requesting prayer please call them directly or leave your details with the Parish Administrator.

If you wish to talk to someone else in confidence, we have trained listeners who are available to listen to you. Contact the Parish Administrator (020 8467 0196) or at parishchurch@btconnect.com and request a listener.
