St Columba’s is both a place
and a people marked by
Christian worship with a rich history,
diversely expressed through our members and ministers,
in response to the person and teaching of Christ,
seeking to understand and
live life in the changing context
of the times.
We place a high value
on the care of our members,
do what we can do to lighten the load
of the world around us
and engage in open-minded
conversation with people from
all walks of life.
Our Special Services
Special services are held to celebrate important events during the Christian year. Holy week services are held each evening during the week prior to Easter and the very moving service of Tenebrae is held at 19h00 on Maundy Thursday.
The Good Friday service is held at 09h00 and the services on Easter Sunday are always well attended. On Ascension Day (always falls on a Thursday) a communion service is held and this is followed by traditional congregational breakfast cooked by the Ministers!
On Christmas Eve
we have a service which
starts at 18h00 which is
always popular and the
services at 09h00 on Christmas Day
are invariably very well attended.
We also enjoy Carols by Candlelight in the George Hay Park opposite the Church, preceded by a picnic. This will be held on 17th November 2020 at 6pm. Please join us for this wonderful event which is attended by many of the congregation and community.
