The new St. Nicholas is a vibrant parish. We have been in our new home in Westwood Hills since 2004, during which time our parish has increased from 25 to over 100 families. Our ministries have grown with this expansion, and we now have an active Women’s Group, Men’s Breakfast Group, choir, lay readers, altar guild, community outreach program, Takeout Dinner Group, and Friday Morning Prayer and Discussion Group, Dinner Theater Troop, Supper Club and many others.
We have three very unique gathers on Sundays. Our 9:30am service is Holy communion, and although it is liberal it is everything you would expect from an Anglican liturgy. We found traditional Sunday School was no longer meeting the needs of our Young Families, so we developed a brand new program which we call the Family Pray Ground. The Family Pray Ground is our 10:30am Sunday gathering; which is an inter-generational hands on Sunday School. A fellowship time is held between these two Sunday morning services from around 10:30-1o:50. On the last Sunday of the month we only have one morning service at 9:30 which is a Youth Led Eucharist and we have Sundays@5, which is a 5pm evening gathering around the supper table. This gathering focuses on building community, we share supper together and then have a story, discussion and a craft of activity to draw our the moral or ethical teaching of the evening. This is a great gathering for anyone who is unsure about the whole church scene, it is a great place to meet new friends and find and extended family. St. Nicholas provides individuals and families a welcoming place to worship, to share, and to grow in the love of God.
