JAM (Jesus and Me) is for primary age children, and meets in the church halls each Sunday morning. On the first Sunday of the month, which is a Holy Communion Service, the children go directly to JAM activities.

On the fourth Sunday there is a Family Service with the children in church for the full service and often participating in the worship activities.

Senior Moments

Senior Moments is a group for those over 50 years of age. The group meets on a monthly basis and as part of the activities also has a luncheon club. A wide variety of talks, demonstrations etc are provided for the membership which includes both parishioners and non-parishioners.

Bell Ringers

The church is blessed to have a bell tower and this group provides the sound of church bells ringing for the town. The group meets for practice on a Tuesday evening and locals often comment on the pleasant sound of bells that can be heard around the town.

Bowling Club

The parish has a well-supported Bowling Club which meets in the church hall during the winter months which provides a recreational opportunity for those who attend. The club is attended by parishioners and others who are not members of the church. The club is involved in matches as participants in the local churches league.

Scouts, Rainbows, Brownies, Guides

These organisations operate under the wider umbrella of the relevant national organisations but are grounded in St. Nicholas’ church. They hold their meetings in the church halls and where relevant hold organisation related services or participate in other relevant services in the church.

Women's Fellowship

The Women’s Fellowship group meets on a monthly basis and provides an opportunity for the ladies of the Parish to meet in a Christian based setting. A wide and varied programme of talks, demonstrations, visits etc is provided throughout the year. In recent times they have co-ordinated congregational support for collections for Baby Basics and Seamen’s Christian Friends Society, Port of Belfast.

Busy Bees

Busy Bees is a structured play group for pre-school children, their parents and often grandparents. The group meets on a Friday morning in the church halls where a wide variety of educational and stimulating toys and activities are provided. This group attracts both parishioners and non-parishioners and has proven to be an important outreach work supporting parents of young children.
