Comment: My wife and I visited Kenilworth and St. Nicholas for the first time in Ocotber 2011 while on a roots tour. My wife is descended from Joseph Drury b.1773 who sailed to Canada in 1819 and a long line of Drurys from Kenilworth. Our stay was too short but what a beautiful town and church.

Comment: I just want to say I love this church. Every time I visit Kenilworth I visit St Nicholas, I am in awe of the wonderful work of God’s hands. A truly stunning Church in the most beautiful surroundings.

Comment: Greetings. Used to attend St Barnabas in the 1980s. Played the piano sometimes at services. Still keep in touch with Margaret Pointer at Christmas and Easter. 25 years nearly, and I still think of Kenilworth and the area with very fond memories. Very happy Christmas to all members of St Barnabas church, and may 2010 bring blessings of peace, health and joy

Comment: My Swedish wife and I took our marital vows here in 2003 and lived initially in New Bridge Street, then Windy Arbour, before moving to Bath in 2006. We miss the friendly community, atmosphere and ambience of St Nicholas; and my wife has remarked many times that she has not yet found an equivalent place of worship where she can just pop in for reflective, peaceful meditation and prayer during the day.

Comment: Alicia & I got married at St Nicks in March 1992 and now live with our 5 children at the Scottish border. Two of us are back Friday 11 July for the funeral of our dear neighbour Roy from School Lane. Happy memories.
Name: Hazel Cashmore

Comment: I have many memories of St Nicholas school and church. I was confirmed by Bishop Bardsley in 1961 and a member of the ladies church choir (remember lots of concerts put on in Parochial Hall) in the middle 1960s. I also attended St Barnabas church when Rev Theibald was there and remember making a scrapbook about the consecration of the then new Coventry Cathedral in Sunday School. I enjoyed my time at both churches and it’s lovely to see your website. I left Warwickshire in 1978 for Scotland. Does anyone remember the ladies choir of the 60s? Would like to know with fond memories. Hazel Cashmore nee Salisbury.

Comment: I came to Kenilworth with my family in June 2005 to visit an old college friend who married a fine fellow who is a professor at the University of Warwick. We stayed at her house in Upper Ladyes Hills and on Sunday morning I walked down the hill to St. Nicholas for the early service, since I’m a regular member of our parish here in Maryland. The people and the vicar were very friendly – he told me a bit of the history of the church and it was fascinating; the church has been around long before North America was even colonized – and if we lived in Kenilworth I know where I’d find a church home. I’ve begun bell ringing at the Washington National Cathedral and the next time we come to Kenilworth I hope to meet the band and maybe join in a bit. You have a fine web site and a very lively church community!

Comment: My husband Mark and I attended St Nick’s and were married there in March 2003 by Patrick Taylor. We now attend St Matthew’s in Coates, nr Cirencester, and have become a family of four! (Lucy, 3 and Adam 11 months). Still have very fond memories of the Church/Kenilworth. Best wishes to Richard, and the congregation.
