About Us

St Nicholas Methodist Church has existed on the present site for over 150 years since it opened in 1867.

We are a friendly community of believers where all are welcomed. We help each other to worship God, and strive to live more like Christ in service beyond the walls of our church building.

Today we start the third in our series of Easter Reflections

Symbols of Christ’s Passion and Resurrection
Cruel Nails and Crown of Thorns

Nails so cruel and thorny crown
Are the marks of his renown
Majesty, ne’er was there shown
As our death he dies, alone.

Those implements of death define
Our sin, the sentence and the crime
Not of this innocence divine
Who out of love hangs here for mine.

Lord of the cross and thorny crown
Your nail pierced hands, stretched to atone
Call me to take my cross and own
Your way to follow, yours alone.

I ask for strength your way to take
And if I falter or forsake,
Lord, touch my soul, me re-awake
And guide the journey I must make.
