Her Late Majesty queen elizabeth ii

We at St Nicholas are deeply saddened by the news of the death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a monarch who gave so much to the nation, the Commonwealth, and the peoples of the world in her life long imitation of Christ the King.

St Nicholas Church will be open daily at 9am and 6pm until after the state funeral for members of the public to come and light a candle in memory of Her Late Majesty, and to write in our book of remembrance. The book of remembrance will be closed following the state funeral and sent, along with all other parish books of remembrance, to the palace as a mark of our condolence for His Majesty the King, and all the Royal Family.

Please do pray for the soul of Her Late Majesty, for His Majesty King Charles III, and all the Royal family at such a difficult time.

Welcome to our website!

We are the oldest parish church in Boston, keeping a worshipping presence offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass since around 1066. We continue to seek to bring our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ to the community and bear witness to Him.

As a parish of the Society of St Wilfred and Hilda in the Diocese of Lincoln, the Mass is integral to our life, without which we could not sustain our existence. The Solemn Parish Mass on Sunday is offered in keeping with that of the saints who have gone before us; with splendour and beauty. We do this to offer our prayers and praises to our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ as He reveals Himself to us in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar which we receive in the Eucharist.

As a parish of the Society, we look to the Bishop of Richborough to provide Episcopal oversight for us and to enable us to enjoy a relationship of full communion not only with him but also with other parishes of the Society.
