Welcome to St Nick's Dunnington, from Revd Nick Bird
I've been the parish priest here since January 2009, following a previous career as a nurse. I live with my wife, Diane, and our three boys - Zachary, Reuben and Jude.
Hospitality is at the heart of everything we do at St Nick's. As a church family we welcome others because God's welcome to us is the foundation of all that we believe ('We love because God first loved us' - 1 John 4.19).
Hospitality also means accommodating others. To do this we make ready to change shape, to accommodate, and to meet the needs of those who join us. We do this also to make sure that everyone feels included and at home.
The Eucharist (Holy Communion) is at the heart of all Christian worship, and of our own parish church, because it is the meal to which we are all invited, and through which the love and grace (free gift) of God is made known - the meal at which God is the host. It is a touching place between heaven and earth, where the ordinary and the divine meet.
We are a church family of all ages and traditions, seeking to recognise God in each other, and to serve the community around us.
We look forward to welcoming you too.
