You Are Welcome!

At St Nicolas Anglican Church:

  • You are welcome if you are here for the first time or if you’ve come every week since the church was built.
  • We welcome those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, gay, confused, filthy rich, comfortably-off, or dirt-poor.
  • We extend a special welcome to wailing babies and excited toddlers.
  • We welcome you if you can sing like an angel or just growl quietly to yourself.
  • You are welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woken up or just got out of prison.
  • We don’t care if you’re more Christian than an Archbishop or if you haven’t been to church since Christmas 10 years ago.
  •  We welcome those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and teenagers growing up too quickly. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegans and junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, down in the dumps, or don’t like organised religion.
  • We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here because visiting Granny means taking her to church.
  • We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throats as kids or got lost and wound up here by mistake.
  • We welcome seekers, doubters, visitors, the faithful and the uncertain; and we welcome YOU!

Jesus welcomes everyone so we reckon we will too.
