Christingle is a beautiful celebratory event that takes place in thousands of churches and schools across the country, raising funds that help The Children’s Society to continue it’s work supporting young people.
As well as being a fun-filled activity to teach children the Gospel, Christingle creates cherished memories for the whole community too.

St Nicholas Church, Ulceby - Art Project
We are delighted to announce that we have an exciting Art Project arranged to celebrate the heritage church. The church has some interesting and significant features which those taking part in the project, will be invited to use to inspire their work, culminating in an exhibition in the Summer. We are delighted to have 2 local artists to assist with this exciting project.
In addition to the organised events below, there will also be the opportunity for persons with existing skills to submit work for the exhibition, the only criteria being that the heritage of St Nicholas Church must be used to inspire your piece. More information in respect of the exhibition will follow closer to the time.
21st March 2017 – St Nicholas Church, Ulceby, received the good news that it is set to benefit from an £8,000 National Churches Trust Repair Grant to help fund urgent roof repairs which will help remove this Grade I listed church from the Historic England ‘Heritage at Risk’ register.
Thank You to Ashton and Isabel from the bottom of our hearts.
A big thank you to these two lovely pupils from St Nicholas Primary School who very kindly participated in a “Lifestyle” project to raise funds towards the church “Loo” appeal.
“Lifestyle” for the uninitiated is a Humberside Police sponsored project which was established in 1989 to challenge young people to get involved with their communities and make a difference during the summer holidays.
Well, Ashton and Isabel certainly did make a difference to us. They worked really hard together to make popcorn, create games of chance and collect things to sell at a local charity event, and the result was a very attractive stall.
They came to present their hard earned £45 to the Reverend David Martineau and the congregation at the service on 15th October 17 and received a round of applause with our gratitude.
It’s brilliant that those so young care enough about this beautiful ancient building to raise funds for us.
