Our Church Services

This ancient site has been a place of worship even before our current church was completed in 1320. For millennia, the people of Galway have met here for spiritual sustenance and guidance.

Now more than ever before, we warmly welcome all to our services, regardless of background. Here you will find a friendly community, rooted in the rhythm of prayer and music that is at the heart of the Anglican liturgical tradition, and united in their beautiful diversity. We celebrate that diversity within our Eucharistic tradition, bringing together all the people of God gathered around the altar every Sunday.

Over the period 2019-2022, the St Nicholas’ community engaged in a series of discussions and layout trials, to better understand our liturgical needs and how best to express and meet them in the configuration of the church interior. The resulting full Liturgical Statement can be found complete here. Below is a summary of that statement:


9am: Said service
