Cathy's Licensing Service at Dacre 26 September 2021

Cathy was licensed by Bishop James at St Andrew's Church, Dacre at the 9.30am service on 26 September. The service was streamed and members of Shotwick Church joined the congregation here at St Nicholas' to watch it live on "the big screen". Several members of Burton Church were able to attend the service at Dacre.

Farewell to Cathy and Steve 19 September 2021

Following Cathy's final services a Community Picnic was held to say farewell to Cathy and Steve. Tents had been erected on the field behind the Sports Pavilion and decorated with bunting and everyone brought their own food. Despite the drizzle it was a wonderful occasion. More details can be found in the October - November Parish Magazine here.

Songs of Praise in the churchyard 6 June 2021

An outdoor Songs of Praise was held outside church on a sunny afternoon in June. People had put in their requests previously and it was wonderful to be able to sing joyfully without the restriction of masks. For photos of the event, see here.

Caring for God's Acre 12 June 2021

St Nicholas' Church recently participated in a national campaign focussing on the nation’s churchyards. 

"Caring for God’s Acre" sought to encourage us to look afresh at our churchyards and burial grounds to look at their biodiversity and history. 

Several groups, including The Robins class from Bishop Wilson School, The church youth group TBY, and a number of church members took part in surveys of the plants, trees, insects and wildlife. 

The TBY youth group plan to continue their involvement and look at ways we can protect biodiversity around the churchyard - and to help keep it on the agenda among the church community and the village.
