Nicosia International Church, or NIC, exists to build a biblical community of committed believers from all walks of life, for the glory of God and the fulfilment of Christ's redemptive purposes, making disciples in Nicosia and beyond. We have been serving locals, expats, embassy workers, students, refugees, and more for decades, and have taken many forms over that time. At the current moment, we are a small church that's looking to grow in number and Christlikeness, and you are very welcome to join us!
We are a Bible-based, non-denominational church, welcoming people from a diverse range of nationalities, denominational backgrounds, and theological convictions. We hold firmly to the primary issues (the things we must all believe about God and salvation), such as the Trinity, the divine nature of Jesus Christ as the Son of God, His death and resurrection, that salvation is a gift of grace that is received through faith in Christ, the authority of the Bible, and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). We also recognise that there are secondary matters where sincere, Bible-believing Christians can have differing views, such as spiritual gifts, election, the end times, baptism methods, church government, dress codes, and so on. These are opportunities to build understanding and unity together as the diverse body of Christ in our city, with Him as the common denominator we all share.

We currently have a Sunday School class for children once a month, and are planning to expand our provision as we grow in number. On Sundays when this is not taking place, we provide Bible-based activities for children, with colouring and crafts at the back of the church during the sermon.
Our worship style is contemporary, with songs chosen from a broad range of artists and publishers. Lyrics are projected on a large screen, as is the sermon text and any relevant notes. Our service consists of a call to worship with a short reading, a time of worship, an intercessory prayer time, the sermon, and then closing worship. Sermons are usually approximately 30 minutes in length.
We have a communion service on the first Sunday of every month, where we take the Lord's Holy Communion together as a church. You do not have to be a member of NIC to join us in communion, but please bear in mind that it is a sacrament for believers. If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you are still very welcome to attend and watch.
Our Sunday service takes place at 11:30am on Sundays at St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral. The cathedral is air conditioned, which is a welcome relief from the summer heat. During the colder months the cathedral is heated, but we still recommend you dress in warm clothing for your comfort. While some people prefer to dress formally, you are welcome to come dressed casually as you wish.
