St Nicholas Broadwey

St Nicholas Church Broadwey, Weymouth,  is located on the B3159 Dorchester Road, just 100 yards south of the Littlemoor Road mini roundabout. Standing outside the Church and looking around at the surrounding area, with the ancient Roman Road close by and the river at the bottom of Mill Street, it would be hard not to imagine an early Roman or even pre-Roman settlement here in Broadwey around 2000 years ago. It may well be that the present Church stands on the site of a early Saxon Church, itself built from the materials previously used for a Roman cultic centre.

Like many Norman Churches, changes have taken place over the years. A toilet and Sunday School room was added in 1985. On Wednesday October 3rd 2001, all of the pews were removed from the body of the Church. Two angled pews were retained adjacent to the font, along with one high quality pew which now shelters a small group meeting area from the main body of the church (adjacent to the organ), and a matching Modesty Screen (
currently held in the storage room on the south side of the chancel).

The Church was then re-decorated. A new carpeted worship area was created, and the children’s area was re-ordered. The sound system was enhanced with new speakers and a Loop for the Hard of Hearing. A new All Season frontal is now on the Holy table. 165 new soft-furnished chairs arrived on Friday 26th October. A nappy-changing area is located in a side room.

The Sunday School Room is equipped with new chairs and has a TV and Video. In the Church we have added a screen and data projector which enhances our music group led worship and all-age teaching.
