About Us

We are a Church of England Parish proclaiming God's love in the heart of the community. We seek to be a friendly, family church which offers a warm welcome to all. Our style of worship is mainly modern catholic, with the Eucharist at the centre of our church life, though we also offer more informal services.

We seek to:

• proclaim God’s love
• welcome all people
• teach, baptise and nurture
• respond to human need with loving service
• rejoice through the beauty of Word, Sacrament and music

You can also discover more about the Benefice of Rural East York, of which we are are part, and our Local Ecumenical Partnership with Dunnington Methodist Church. There is also information on the history of St Nicholas and our beautiful and historic building.

For information on groups and activities for children, youth and adults, see our Get involved pages.

You can also pick up a copy of our monthly magazine "The Grapevine", available for 25p from the Tower Room at St Nicholas. The Grapevine features news and events from around the benefice as well as details of local businesses. To have The Grapevine delivered to your door every month, please contact Barry Hewitt.
