Each Sunday, St Columba’s and St Ninian’s will be open for people who can’t access Zoom or who would rather gather in a church. Everyone is asked to adhere to the Scottish Government Covid restrictions in place at that time.
St Columba’s building is starting to reopen slowly. At the moment the NHS Baby Immunisation Clinics, which are regarded as essential are taking place on Thursdays. This is run by NHS nurses, who will take responsibility for the Coronavirus precautions. As we enter Level 1, all classes and groups are now welcome to contact us in order to begin the re-introduction of their sessions. We are currently adhering to the Scottish Government rules and guidance which includes full requirement of risk assessments and plans from each group. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
St Columba’s Church is still very active. There will be regular updates through the Facebook page, website and Sunday services through our Zoom and YouTube platforms.
The Little Fishes Toddler group restarted on Tuesday June 8th for four weeks until the Summer break.
We will restart on Tuesday 24th August.
We will be adhering to the Scottish Government Covid-19 legislation in place at that time. Our webpage and Facebook page will be updated as soon as the new legislation has been published.

The first service in the St Columba’s Church building was on 14th April 1961. We recently celebrated our 60th anniversary.
To mark the 60th anniversary , we have collected some pictures from the last 60 years. https://www.st-columbas.com/picture-challenge/ Our challenge was to share any memories or stories triggered by these pictures – we know there are lots of people with connections to the church. Printed copies have now been distributed. If you know of anyone else who would like one, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then collect the stories and produce another booklet later in the year.
