St Nicholas Church is a fine medieval building but, much more than that, it is also the people of the community who live and work in our beautiful parish. The church stands as a powerful reminder of what community life meant to the people of past centuries; today it remains a symbol for shared experience and the spirit of community.

St NicholasIn ancient times the church was an important community space; it was only much later that the building was reserved exclusively for ecclesiastical use. We are lucky still to have the dramatic original nave of St Nicholas with its fine acoustics. We are also fortunate to share with the parish community the vision of restoring the nave to its central and original community role.

We are an ecumenical congregation and welcome everyone who wants to meet and talk with us, question and challenge us, share our vision and join us.

Nativity Live
For the last 10 years on Christmas Eve, Mary and Joseph, a child and a donkey, shepherds and Wise Men have gathered at the top of the village to begin Nativity Live!

This is a special celebration for Christmas Eve which has become a very popular and colourful tradition in Grosmont. The procession pauses at the Angel Inn but finds “no room at the inn”, and continues on to the Nave of St. Nicholas Church.
All gather in the Nave for the familiar carols and a different presentation of the Christmas story.
Mince pies and mulled wine complete the special evening.

Archery in the Nave

Sandy Ireson runs her acclaimed Archery Lessons in the Nave on Friday evenings. These are suitable for all age groups (within reason!). All profits go to support St Nicholas, Grosmont. If you are interested in joining, further information is available from Sandy
