St Martin’s Church, North Nibley

Welcome to St Martin’s pages. This page acts as our focus and summarises our events and activities, providing links to more details about them, about our church, our people and how to contact us.

 

The latest changes to these pages:
*  Sunday 17th January 2021 – Rev Peter Marsh has recorded his ‘ramblings’
*  Another treat from North Nibley Churches Together – a recorded video for Epiphany
*  WE ARE SAD TO REPORT THAT THE CHURCH WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. WEEKLY RECORDED SERVICES CONTINUE

The churchyard remains open and provides a place for quiet reflection and prayer – with benches. Please do make use of it.

There is a new BLOG / POST for each Sunday with some notices.  We alternate between full services with music  and ‘ramblings’, with prayers.  

Rev Peter Marsh will be taking communion every Sunday in his woodworking shed.

Please feel free to join in with prayer!

 

Summary of Regular Services

There are currently no services in church

Every Sunday – a recorded service is available on this website. It alternates between a service of the word with music, and a service of ‘ramblings’ with prayers and , sometimes, music.

Forthcoming ‘Events’

 We are sad to have to report that, as from the beginning of 2021, the church will be closed until further notice. Recorded services will be available every Sunday…

 

 

 

 

The Church of England web site gives more information and will signpost Christian resources available on line.

The term ‘Spiritual Communion’ has been used historically to describe the means of grace by which a person, prevented for some serious reason from sharing in a celebration of the Eucharist, nonetheless shares in the communion of Jesus Christ.

 

 

About us

The Benefice
The parish of North Nibley is part of the Tyndale Benefice, which has just appointed a new vicar. The Benefice Profile gives an overview of the churches, their aspirations and the environment in which they reside.

Churches Together
We work closely with the Chapel in the village, sharing services and other events throughout the year

Choir
We have a dedicated choir which sings at all the 9.30 communion services, as well as at ‘special’ services. It is always keen to welcome  new members

Bells
The bellringers are looking for new ringers!

Village School
We have very close links with our village C of E primary school, which holds many services in the Church, as well as ‘experience’ events, supported by members of the congregation. We help with ‘open the book’ and hold joint fundraising events with the Friends of the school – FONNS.
We also work with the village nursery and playgroup.
