Christian Outreach in the Community

 

The Christian life is alway "other - focussed".  Jesus tells us that in addition to loving God with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength, we are to love our neighbours as ourselves.  St Nicholas' responds to those in need in may practical ways, including:

  • Supporting the work of Southern Opportunity Shop Mentone

  • Contributing to our local community via weekly food baskets 

  • Supporting Community Christmas Projects as required

  • Regular financial contributions ot the missional work of the wider Anglican Church 

In the months ahead, St Nicholas’ will begin a community-based conversation to help us plan new ways forward so that we will be even more actively involved in Christian outreach in our local community. Come and join the conversation!

Pastoral Ministries

  • to the aged and unwell

  • Spiritual Direction

  • Weddings, Baptisms, and Funerals

  • conducted by the Vicar and Pastoral Ministry Team.

Current Conversations 

At Nicholas’ we are interested in current debates in the Church and the wider community about issues of faith, liturgy, religion, social justice and spirituality. It is good to engage in such conversations from an informed, thoughtful and respectful position. We acknowledge that Anglicanism as a Christian denomination values unity in diversity, and that diversity inevitably brings with it a variety of standpoints and views. From time to time we will post links here to current conversations and debates that interest us. We do so in the hope that others will also find value in the variety and diversity of views expressed.

The Pilgrim Course

'The Pilgrim course is a journey to the heart of God and to a living, 
personal relationship with Jesus Christ.'


 - The Archbishops of Canterbury and York.

A course for the twenty-first century, Pilgrim offers an approach of participation, not persuasion. Enquirers are encouraged to practice the ancient disciplines of biblical reflection and prayer, exploring key texts through modules of six sessions that have helped people learn and grow in faith since the early Church. You can read more about the course here.

The Pilgrim Course has already been welcomed and used by many churches around Australia. It introduces our faith, and enables a deepening of our faith. 

Course booklets can be ordered online or through St Peter's Bookroom in East Melbourne.
