Some of you will be aware that the work is due to begin this year on essential renovations. On Wednesday, 17th August a few members of the PCC and the Churchwardens met with the architect and builders and they have received confirmation that work will start initially on the steeple and on the outside steps during the week commencing 19th September. Although we intend to remain a place of worship through out, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
St Nicholas Historic Church Laindon.
“St. Nicholas Church in Laindon is a community of faith, a place to encounter Jesus where people of all ages and walks of life will find welcome, healing, renewed strength, purpose and peace in their lives.”
Rev’d Andrei Petrine
Was thoroughly enjoyable for everybody involved, even the skittles where a hit with the kids. A big thank you to Andrei and his family.
We welcome everyone to our fantastic service every Sunday from 10:00, let your children join our brilliant developing Sunday school. The children then showcase what they’ve worked on at the end of the service. On the first Sunday of every month (starting at the same time) is the family service a fun and interactive service for children and adults.

St Nicholas youth initiative.
Following the sad loss of venue at Paddocks hall, the youth initiative is temporarily disbanded. We soon hope to find a new venue to move forward in. Any idea’s, or venue suggestions please talk to Andrei.
Almighty God, who hast called thy Church to witness that thou wast in Christ reconciling the world to thyself: help us so to proclaim the good news of thy love that all who hear it may be drawn unto thee; through him who was lifted up on the cross, and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
