The Church of Saint-Nicolas-des-Champs (Église Saint-Nicolas-des-Champs) is a Catholic church in Paris' Third arrondissement. The building in Flamboyant Gothic style dates from the 12th, 15th and 17th centuries. The parish is associated with the charismatic Emmanuel Community.
The present organ is a 17th-century instrument rebuilt in 1777 by François-Henri Clicquot and further modified in 1930, when a récit expresif was added. Among the organists who worked at the church were Nicolas Gigault (1652–1707), Etienne Richard (1651–1669), Louis Braille (1834–1839), François-Xavier Joseph Wackenthaler (1854–1855), Jean-Chrisostome Hess (1855–c.1889), and Michel Chapuis (1954–1972).
