On Tuesday, 11th February, you are invited to come along to a short service in Saint Nicholas’ where parishioners will be able to come forward to receive the sacrament of healing.

Afternoon tea will be served in the Presbytery following the service and parishioners are welcome to bring along a spouse, or even a friend who feels that they might derive some benefit and comfort.

Please take an printed invitation which will be available at the weekend and return them to Carol Baker or Pat Nolan with names of all who wish to take tea in order that catering can be arranged.

HIDDEN VOICES – Tackling Modern Slavery


Hidden Voices is an exciting process which aims to inform and support local communities in taking action on the challenging issue of Modern Slavery.

Hidden Voices will help you know how to spot slavery and then join with others in Bristol – and eventually the wider community – in tackling the issue.

The aim is that our parishes should be equipped in understanding, detecting and preventing slavery and trafficking, whilst also enabling those affected.

To support the lead of the Santa Marta Initiative, these sessions are particularly for the Catholic Community in Bristol and are led by two experienced lay Catholics. The process take place over three sessions. Please consider attending, even if you cannot manage all three sessions.

Time: 10am – 12.30pm

Dates: 11th January, 25th January and 8th February

Where: St Nicholas Church, Lawfords Gate, Bristol BS5

NB car parking available via Pennywell Road Entrance or on the street
