ST NICHOLAS CHURCH HAS A NEW HEALTH & SAFETY OFFICER
Grosmont PCC is delighted that Mike Noakes has volunteered to be Health and Safety officer for the church, including its wonderful 13th century Nave which hosts church and community events. Mike, a trained polymer chemist, retired to Grosmont 4 years ago, following a career in the paint coatings industry.
Priest in Charge, Rev. Dr. Jean Prosser, said “Mike will fill an important role as more events draw more people to enjoy our wonderful building, especially as our Christmas festivities get under way.”
We welcome visitors.

Further information from Andrew.
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.
In 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.
Jean Prosser is Priest in Charge of the Grosmont Group of Parishes. Jean was centrally involved in the huge achievement of preventing the imminent collapse of St Cadoc’s Church at Llangattock Lingoed, which now stands restored and beautiful. We see this restoration as a metaphor for how we take forward the life of our worshipping community. Under Jean’s leadership the ministry team, the PCC and the whole congregation look outwards towards the wider community to engage with it and share our Christian vision. 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.
