THE CHURCH OF ST NICHOLAS - ULCEBY

The Parish Church of St Nicholas Ulceby dates from the 13th Century and is a Grade I listed building. This beautiful building is set in an attractive churchyard in the village.

The church is supported by its parishioners, the Church Council and the Friends of St Nicholas. Throughout the year there are events and special services to not only try to raise funds for the church but to ensure the church remains the focal point of the community.

“People may not attend regular services but turn to the Church on the happiest and saddest occasions in their lives. It is here for all and open for all. It speaks to us of Faith and we owe it to future generations to preserve and pass on this heritage” – Margaret Thompson – Parishioner and former Church Warden of St Nicholas.

Message from the Chair of the PCC

Dear friends,

Exciting times!

I mentioned in my first update that the Restoration Project physical repair work was expected to begin in the springtime of 2018. Since then the planning and activities have been brimming with life as we continue to progress at full throttle towards our goal. We have held a successful tendering exercise to appoint a contractor to oversee the work, had news of a grant towards helping us to include toilet facilities earlier than anticipated (possibly early in 2018) and are now going through the administrative processes to ensure the roofing and toilet/kitchen works have the appropriate legal permissions that are required. When I see the level of activity, it’s enough to make me giddy with excitement, although the enormity of the exercise can often be a bit mind-blowing.

There are so many people that deserve thanks and praise for making all this happen so far. I want to mention our partners including technical advisors, grant application advisors, Lincoln Diocese, our wonderful local businesses, North Lincolnshire Council, English Heritage, National Churches Trust and every single member of the Friends of St Nicholas Church without whom all this would not have happened. But I want to end by thanking you, our supporters throughout the community and beyond who have attended our events; bought raffle tickets; donated money and goods to sell; baked for us; saved pennies; bought calendars; donated photographs and video footage and given us such wonderful encouragement.

Please feel free to explore all of the news incorporated into this website, there’s a lot to keep up with. You will find all sorts of information for your perusal, from news on up and coming Services of Worship, fund-raising and community events and more detailed progress reports on where we are with the on-going restoration work.

The Friends of St Nicholas also have a separate page which details everything they are up to, so now I invite you to continue exploring.

Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help lift him up.
