What we do
St Nicholas Church in Newbald is a beautiful village church in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds in East Yorkshire. During normal times we celebrate many things throughout the church calendar year with our local community.
We are here for everyone when they need us and especially for personal times in people’s lives including Christenings, Weddings and Funerals.
We are a relatively small church community on a weekly basis, but we support and celebrate many occasions with adults and children in our community, including children’s parties, Easter Services, Harvest Festival, Remembrance Services, Christmas Carols, Nativity and Christmas Services. We need to ensure we raise enough funds to be able maintain our beautiful building and to support the wider community in our area.
In order to secure funds on a regular basis we would like to create a cafe and small shop in our church. This will serve to provide additional community facilities in our village, for local people, walkers and cyclists as well ensure we have a regular income to meet the running and maintenance costs of the church.
Our stonework repairs have been estimated at £5,000 per year and we are currently underway with stonework repairs costing £25,000.
Our vision is to ensure our church meets the needs of our community and remains central to the people we serve. We want our church to be a ‘living church’ , where people can meet up regularly and enjoy our facilities. We want to be central to the lives of everyone who lives here.
