The loss of someone dearly loved is both a moment and a journey. The event of death stretches most of us beyond our immediate set of resources, in matters practical, and perhaps even more so, in relation to our inner fortitude.

Our hope, at St Columba’s, is to assist all who call on us – members and non-members – at such times, insofar as we are able, in both of these ways, by:

• Putting you in touch with an undertaker or working alongside one of your choice.

• Arranging an appointment with one of our ministers who will guide you through the process of organising a dignified memorial or funeral service.

​• Helping you to arrange tea and eats in our hall.

• Referring you to a qualified and experienced counsellor or psychiatrist (where necessary).

Please do not hesitate to call us on (011) 646 5420
