St Nicholas Church, Ringmore

We were delighted to welcome Bishop Nicholas of Plymouth to conduct our

Patronal Festival Service in December.

Bishop Nick gave a very encouraging address, including information on our

Patron Saint Nicholas, who became Bishop of Myra,

dying on 6th December AD343.

Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need,

his love for children and his concern for sailors and ships.

It is thought that Santa Claus is based on this very special and generous Saint.
