History:
The foundation stone of St Nicholas, Charlo was laid in 1937 and the building was consecrated by Bishop Archibald Cullen on 7 October, 1939. It was at that stage a "district church within the Parish of St Mary's". Since then it gained parish status, then lost this to fall under the Parish of St John the Baptist, Walmer and again gaining parish status in 1977 with the Revd Brian Bird as its first Rector. In 1968 the original building was lengthened to make space for a Sunday School and club house. Later a pre-fab building was erected to house the growing Sunday School and further development was the addition of the church porch. The original garage was converted into 'The Lighthouse' with the parish office, and book and tape library. Once again the building is bursting at its seams and needs to expand. The first phase of the new building project has just been completed, which is the new toilet block and our vision is to start the second phase of the new church building some time in 1996.
