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 Parochial Church Council

Dear friends,

As our restoration works continue into 2019, I thought that you would appreciate a progress report.

It’s taken us 800 years, but I am pleased to report that we now have hot and cold running water, disabled toilet facilities, a cleaner’s cupboard and a servery all fully installed and operational. Not to mention the wonderful watertight and draught free roof and the eradication of the ever-present damp smell. I can’t begin to explain how super it is not to have to run down the path to the standpipe on a cold January morning for water, or to explain that we do not have any toilet facilities to those in need.

It’s not all been plain sailing though, the enormity of the exercise we are undertaking has been very difficult at times. Many lessons have been learned along the way; the legal processes of applying for the appropriate permissions, the actual technicalities of the work, the balancing of the books and the length of time to complete some simple tasks has been challenging. Not to mention the unforeseen closure of the building for many months due to the complexity of the internal and external roof repairs and the problems this posed for health and safety. (Thanks to Mark & Teresa at Tea@6 Tearooms for their fantastic community spirit by allowing us to worship there for the full period of closure.)

Without the essential advice of our architect, the Diocese, North Lincolnshire Council and The Heritage Lottery Fund we would have fallen by the wayside well before the work started. However, I know that now we are starting to see some real progress, none of us regret the project or would have had it any other way.

We’ve still got some way to go before we complete the project, so our work is not yet done. We still await the legal permissions to begin the overhaul of the heating because it remains too cold to open our doors to many community projects and we still must explore sources of funding for upgraded lighting. We are aiming to complete works this year when every member of the community, those with faith and those without will be welcome to use our facilities and get involved with our planned community projects.

Thank you, all our supporters throughout the community and beyond who have helped in many different ways and who have given us such wonderful encouragement to get to this stage.

Deputy Churchwarden

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.
