As restrictions have eased churches are now able to be opened.  

Initially, St Nicholas was open for personal prayer twice a week for two hours, but this is no longer possible.  

This is because from August 9th a simple service of Morning Prayer will be held in St Nicholas every Sunday at 10 am.   The church then needs to be kept locked for 72 hours to ensure any remnants of the virus has disappeared.  Our organist is planning to enter the church on Wednesdays to practice and record some organ music for the Sunday services and it will be necessary to close it for a further 72 hours after that.

We hope that by the Autumn that we may be able to open the church everyday until dusk as previously.   But we are dependant on the regulations set by the Government and the Church of England.y.
