St Nicholas People

RevAmber 02

Revd. Amber Beresford (Benefice Vicar)

We have a terrific team who care enormously for every aspect of St Nicholas church and are pleased to support and assist its future growth and success in every way, under the loving and caring leadership of the Reverend Amber Beresford.

Angela White (01962 736483) and Lucinda Chetwode are St Nicholas’s Churchwardens.  This is Angela’s eighth year as Churchwarden and Lucinda’s second.  Angela is a retired medical secretary/pharmacy dispenser whose life now revolves around family life and grandchildren. Lucinda, originally from Yorkshire, came down to Hampshire from Scotland.  She is an art historian and lecturer, antiques dealer and charitable trustee.

Mandy Caldwell joined the PCC as Secretary after a few years of organising concerts and events for St Nicholas, which she continues to do, along with playing the organ and supporting the Churchwardens when necessary.

A Bright Future

Here at St Nicholas, we are known for our 4 W’s.


We welcome ALL. All are welcome and offered a place of sanctuary, rest and family.


Our range of services, from partaking in ancient liturgy like the Book of Common Prayer to more modern all age services like the Pet Service, enable all to seek and experience God. We love and prioritise music at St Nicholas and our evensong service is an outworking of our love for sung worship.


St Nicholas’ time-honoured building and our history as a worshipping community across the centuries enables us to welcome all who seek wisdom, from secondary school pupils to pilgrims, from the passer by to the preacher, we all journey to seek and share wisdom that we have discovered in our history, tradition and faith.

Walking together

The foundation of St Nicholas is sharing the love of God with one another, walking together with all in the community at the different stages of life. Whether going through a tough patch of grief or a celebration of life, wewalk together, supporting each other.
