Mission and Community

Community Support

Through St Nicholas you have access to a wide range of community and support groups.

Alpha Course Online

This year we will again be running the popular Alpha course although in a slightly different way, as a virtual course over Zoom. The Alpha course gives people an opportunity to explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Many people have previously appreciated the time to explore the meaning of life and journey with other people making new friends along the way. There is no cost; all we ask is that you register before hand as there are limited spaces available.

Because of the current pandemic, this year's course will be online, via Zoom. The starting date is 8.00pm on Thursday 24th September. If you would like to register your interest in the 2020 Alpha please contact the Church Secretary, Pauline Martin. Tel: 01485 544561 or Email: paulinemartin3@googlemail.com

Baby Basics

In 2019 we gave out 44 moses baskets in Dersingham and the Community of North West Norfolk. We have continued to receive support from local knitting groups, schools, churches, etc as well as from the general public.

We had a stand at the Sandringham Flower Show, and at the Magpie Centre, riding for the disabled which helped us with raising monetary donations and was worth all the hard work and heat!!

We really felt God saying to us that a lot of the families we serve have absolutely nothing, so to receive a brand-new basket with a lot of brand-new items in is such a special gift. His provision in making it all happen is a very real reflection of His love for his people.

We have expanded our team and we are all looking forward to serving any mum/family in need in 2020 via the amazing professionals that we work alongside.

Mothers' Union

Mothers’ Union is an international Christian charity that seeks to support families worldwide. Its members are not all mothers or even all women, as there are many parents, men, widows, singles and grandparents involved in its work. Its main aim is to support marriage and family life, especially through times of adversity. With a worldwide membership of over 4 million, the Mothers’ Union is the largest lay ministry in the world.

Here in Dersingham the Mothers’ Union has been working in the background at various occasions during the year, helping with the Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving Service and other occasions.

We present to each Baptised person a prayer book at their Christening Service in Church.

We currently have 24 members but we are always happy to have visitors at our meetings which are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 2pm in Church or as noted in the previous weeks Notice Sheet and Church Magazine. There is no obligation to join although we are always happy to have new members, but just come along and enjoy the company, listen to our speakers and have a cup of tea and a chat afterwards.

For more information please speak to the Branch Leader, Pauline Martin. Tel: 01485 544561 or Email: paulinemartin3@googlemail.com
