in the Community Centre (opposite St James' Church) -all are welcome.

Have you given up on church services? Many people have - stating that 'they are not relevant', they are 'at the wrong time', the 'sermons are boring', they 'didn’t feel welcome', even… 'the church are only after their money'!

Attending church should be enjoyable - that is why we are starting Pizza Church.

With a relaxed atmosphere, modern music, relevant and practical messages, - and its for all the family.

A different way of being church with a contemporary flavour - lasting about an hour including (you’ve guessed it) ‘Pizza’.

On every 1st Thursday of the month at 2pm at St. Nicholas':

a service of readings, poetry, hymns, prayer, reflections, fellowship and afternoon tea


This Mission Community activity happens at The URC in the Market Place every Tuesday from 3:45pm to 5pm- food parcels for those who need them. 

'Take what you need - pay what you can'.   no need to book - just turn up.

We are a church based group who distribute food sourced from the Fareshare initiative to help give those in need within our community a helping hand.

We achieve this by paying a membership fee each week to receive the food supplies not just for redistribution for those, who need it, but to provide meals and snacks. 

The food supplied can be fresh, frozen, canned, store cupboard staples or ready meals depending on availability at the Preston distribution centre.



Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8.20 am to 3.30pm

The Parish Office is in St. Nicholas' Centre
