 FOODBANK – URGENT REQUEST Firstly THANK YOU! to all who have and are supporting our Foodbank and Destitution Fund. You are helping us respond to the significant increase in demand for our Parish Foodbank since the Emergency. We do need supplies of EVERYTHING – primarily non-perishable foods and drinks in tins and packets. Please ring the door bell at the Parish Office Door (old Presbytery door) at the Assisi Centre to drop off any contributions.
What kind of things? Long-life milk and juices, small jars of coffee, tins of meat, fish, vegetables, tinned tomatoes baked beans, soups, custard and fruit; packets of rice, pasta, cereals; jars of pasta sauce, ketchup, mayonaise, packet soups; toilet rolls, bars of soap, toothpaste, and other toiletries.
You are helping us to meet a vital need, making practical in these difficult times ‘love of our neighbour’ and ‘God’s Option for the Poor’. Please be as generous as you can. Thank you in the name of all whom we are serving.
 Due to technical difficulties broadcasting Mass from St Nick’s Church is unreliable, so for the time being I am now broadcasting Mass from the Prayer Room in the Presbytery. Please join us at 6.00pm Monday to Friday, 12noon on Saturdays and 10am on Sundays. I will also be offering on Facebook prayerful reflections and talks Monday to Friday at 10.30am and Saturdays at 6.00pm, with Stations of the Cross on Sundays in Lent at 6.00pm
Welcome to St Nick’s, Bristol
PRAY MOST ESPECIALLY FOR THE SICK AND FOR ALL HEALTH CARE WORKERS.
MEANWHILE PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR NATION AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER, ESPECIALLY OUR ELDERLY AND MOST VULNERABLE. LET US ALSO EXPLORE HOW WE CAN EFFECTIVELY SUPPORT OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND NEIGHBOURHOODS – LET THE LIGHT OF CHRIST’S COMPASSION AND LOVE SHINE THROUGH US AND GIVE THE GLORY TO GOD!
Whether this is your first time to our Church family, or you have been coming here for many years – all are very welcome to be part of this wonderfully multi-cultural and diverse community of faith and friendship.
This parish has been witnessing to Christ and serving the people of this part of Bristol since 1848.
We are a ‘Communion of Communities in Mission’ with more than 60 nationalities who gather each Sunday at 10am to celebrate God’s great Love for the world in our Mass.
Our commitment is to be a people at the service of the poor, both locally and globally; to be a community of warmth and welcome; to be a community of healing and hope. We are committed to work for the unity of the Church with our brothers and sisters of other Christian traditions, sharing mission and worship together; and to seek to build a fellowship of all believers among the many world faiths in our area.
In other words, we have long been seeking to grow as the kind of community that Pope Francis envisages in his Letter ‘Joy in the Gospel’
All are welcome
