It is with sadness that we receive the news of the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. We pray for him, that he may rest in peace, and rise with Christ in glory. We pray too for Her Majesty the Queen and all the Royal Family, that they may be comforted by the hope of Resurrection at this time of mourning.
St Nicholas' will be open on Saturday 10th April, from 12 noon until the Eucharist at 4.30pm, for any who wish to visit and pray. The bell will be tolled at noon, as the church is opened.
