Welcome to St. Nicholas Church – Kingsway

Join us on Sunday 16th June @ 10:30 a.m. for our Sunday Morning Service
  • Welcome to St. Nick’s for Trinity 3, Father’s Day, Sunday 16th June. 
    Dear Friends,

    This week’s gospel reading brings to light the parable of the mustard seed.In the Gospel according to Mark, Jesus imparts two parables that delve into the themes of growth, patience, and hope. As Jesus captivates ever-growing audiences with his teachings, these parables elucidate the manner in which his words are absorbed and embraced. The journey of faith is likened to the transformation of a tiny seed into a magnificent tree with expansive branches, provided it flourishes in conducive conditions.

    The wonders of nature echo the divine, revealing God’s omnipresence and essence. Attuning ourselves to our role within the ebb and flow of the natural world aids in contemplating our spiritual odyssey alongside God. It encourages us to express gratitude and to mourn our shortcomings in aiding God’s nurturing care of creation. Contemplating collective and personal actions to undertake this critical mission is a worthy endeavour.

    With every blessing, 

    Alison Mills
    ALM and Churchwarden

The bird boxes are now in the trees, ready to welcome our feathered friends. Thank you to David Crossley for installing the boxes on Saturday. The first tree is flourishing in the centre of the garden and plans are now in place for the railway sleepers to form a boundary and the palettes to create some raised borders.
