What is Durham like?
Durham is a compact, vibrant, university city with ancient streets, many bridges over the winding River Wear and a magnificent Norman cathedral. It has a rich cultural heritage and great modern amenities such as gyms, cinemas, shops, restaurants, and theatre venues. We benefit from being a twelve minute train ride away from the centre of Newcastle with all the advantages that a large city can offer. (And it is merely three hours to London.) The North East has vast dramatic countryside to explore and from Durham it is half an hour away from
the coast and many beaches.
What is St Nics like?
St Nics is a church for everyone. We are right in the heart of Durham, in the Market Place. We have a real heart to reach out and serve our city and beyond. Just as we are a gathered congregation of roughly 300, so Durham city centre is a place where people gather from all over.
This year has been incredibly challenging and as things begin to re open we long to engage, open our doors widely and offer a warm welcome, a place of refuge and restoration in these harshest of times and a place of God’s hope and love and an opportunity to hear about Jesus.
Our quirky Victorian building has had many adaptations over the years and we are currently in the process of creating a permanent café space in the Lower Hall. Our wonderful purpose built Youth Centre, a short walk away from the church, is also just metres away from the 6 the form college, has outside space and bags of potential too!
