Wednesday Evening Reflection
3rd March 2021 @ 6.30pm

Sunday Service, 28th February 2021 @ 9AM


Dear Members and Friends of St Columba’s,

In light of the high and rising number of COVID-19 infections, as well as the revised regulations relating to public gatherings, and after much thought and discussion, we have decided to suspend all ‘in person’ services with immediate effect and until further notice (to be revised partway through January 2021). We are especially disappointed to confirm that this will apply to both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services.

This does not mean the complete cancellation of our services. What it does mean is that we are temporarily shifting back to our online platforms. Our services will be broadcast every Sunday at 9am here, facebook and youtube.

It has been a very difficult decision to make, especially during a time when being together with others – and in our beautifully decorated sanctuary – brings a warmth and cheer that so many of us continue to long for in 2020. We do believe however, as is almost always true of Christian discipleship, that in this case, the difficult decision is the better one.

To each and to all, wherever this finds you, be reminded of the promise highlighted by this season – God is with us and in the midst of these peculiar times!

Affectionately yours, 

The St Columba’s Team

where to find us

St Columba’s is situated in the leafy cosmopolitan suburb of Parkview, a short walk from Zoo Lake and close to Johannesburg Zoo at 45 Lurgan Rd, opposite a small park with a playground. The traditional stone Church with its stained glass rose window and other beautiful windows created by leading artists is flanked by a well-tended Garden of Remembrance and fronted by a small courtyard garden with a fountain and fishpond. Its tranquil exterior belies all the activities that take place within the Church walls and beyond.
