“To serve and develop a Christian Community in Ickford”
We, the congregation of St Nicholas’s Church in Ickford, are a Christian Community within the Church of England. We are trustees of the spiritual life of our village, and of the beautiful building we have inherited. We strive to serve God in our dealings with others, to honour God in our actions and to be humble before God in our thoughts. We pray that we may find joy and love within our community, and the strength and unity to proclaim this to all around, in our village, our area and in our lives.
Parish Mission Statement, January 2004.
We hope to achieve these aims through outreach and community projects, charitable giving, prayer and witness.
The Church is committed to charitable giving and supports several charities.
Christian Aid, The Children’s Society, The Royal British Legion,(Poppies), Bucks Historic Churches, The Smile Train, The Church Missionary Society, The Barnabas Fund and Samaritan’s Projects.
We also support The Porch with gifts of food from Harvest Festival, and The Vinestore at Aylesbury with donations of food , clothing and household goods collected by our congregation.
Vision for the future is to build on the rich heritage of the past, and during the present establish St Nicholas as a church for the future. We aim to do this by bridging the generations, through lively relevant worship which is appropriate to adults and children alike.
We would like to think that the next generation will inherit a thriving and virulent church, rich in fellowship, strong in faith and supporting the community it serves. With your help we can achieve this vision.
