AULD CLAES AND PORRIDGE – 8th January 2022
“Back to Normal” doesn’t seem to work anymore, but it looks like we have a wee bit of predictability.
The “Good News” (apart from the wonderful theological meaning) is that we are still able to worship on Sunday mornings at St. Columba’s. If the technology continues to work, we will also be live on Zoom and YouTube. A recording of the service should also be available afterwards on YouTube.
If you wish to worship physically in the church but, given the high number of COVID-19 cases at the moment, we strongly encourage you to take a Lateral Flow Test before coming. Our primary concern is for everyone’s safety and wellbeing. The wearing of face coverings, including for congregational singing is still mandatory. We will also be encouraging physical distancing and a one way system in the church. Until further notice we will not be serving tea and coffee after the service.

Each Sunday we will live stream or upload worship on the YouTube channel. There will also be other occasional items.
The Church is not a building, the Church is not a steeple.
The Church is not a resting-place, the Church is a people!
I am the Church! You are the Church!
We are the Church together!
All who follow Jesus, all around the world,
yes, we’re the Church together.

St Columba’s building is reopening slowly as is permitted by the COVID regulations. Please e-mail email@example.com if you wish to use the halls or you would like an update on groups which have restarted.
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.
St Columba’s Parish Church is situated beside St Columba’s roundabout, near the Kingdom Shopping Centre in Glenrothes. We seek to share God’s love with the people of the parish and beyond.
Our main worship service starts at 11am and all are invited to stay for Tea and Coffee after the service at about 12 noon. We start the service together and, except when we have family services, children leave for the crèche or Junior Church after about 20 minutes.
We welcome visitors to our services. Please don’t worry about what to do when, what to wear or feeling you have to be on your best behaviour! We are just delighted to welcome you.
Messy Church is held on the second Sunday of each month between 4pm and 6pm. This is for anyone, but especially families. It includes crafts, games, singing, stories and we end by sharing a hot meal together.
We hold special services, especially around Christmas and Easter. We also sometimes share worship with the other churches in Glenrothes and Leslie.
