Welcome to St Nicholas Church in Leicester 

The fully inclusive and oldest place of worship in the City

ancient building | living faith | inclusive community

St Nicholas has a diverse congregation. 

We believe strongly in a safe and peaceful environment where our open - minded ethos is practised  in our community of faith.  All are welcome at St Nicholas’ where we subscribe to be an Inclusive Church. As such, in accordance with Inclusive Church "We believe in inclusive Church - a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate. 

We will continue to challenge the church where it continues to discriminate against people on grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, sex, sexuality, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health or neurodiversity. 

We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”  

We work together to celebrate the glorious diversity of humanity both in the church and in our community. We offer a gentle, reflective and non-intrusive space for people of all faiths, and none. People have been using our space since the ninth century,  you may find here a place of rest, prayer and reflection, of challenge and celebration.
