Profile ...

The Mission of St Nicholas is a Provisional Mission within the Diocese. The Chapel is the domestic Chapel of our Bishop, The Right Revd Damien Mead, where the daily offices are said and Mass is celebrated occasionally.

Bishop Mead is Rector of St Augustine's Church, Canterbury where most of our energies are directed however the Chapel provides a focus for prayer at St Nicholas House which also serves as the Diocesan Office.

Before the establishment of our Canterbury Parish our Lydd Mission had a Chapel within the Head Office of Credo Care Ltd, an Independent Fostering Agency for disabled children situated in Lydd High Street. However this was closed when the Canterbury Church was opened and those who attended Mass here transfered to Canterbury. Bishop Mead is Chairman of Credo Care Ltd.

In July 2015 a new Chapel was established in the grounds of the Bishops home, also in Lydd High street, which has now become the new worship home for our Provisional Mission.
