At St Columba’s, we are currently being allowed to hold services, but we are taking a lot of precautions, including face coverings, distancing and enhanced cleaning routines, however we will NOW be able to offer tea and coffee after the services.
As recommended by the Scottish Government, we are encouraging people to take a Lateral Flow Test before meeting up with people from other households.
Hoping that you find some of the Love, Peace, Hope and Joy of Jesus, God with Us.
We are invited to vote for projects to receive funding from the 2:10 Mission Fund. The Pilgrim Way Pastorate is being supported by St Columba’s, but these are all great projects – why not cast your vote

Junior Church is back!
We are looking forward to welcoming all the young people who have been to Junior Church in the past, as well as any who have not been before. We will be in the church for the first part of the service, as before, and then we will go through to the big hall. At the end of Junior Church, the leaders will bring the children back to the sanctuary.All young people, aged 3-16, are more than welcome!
Church Service Update
WE ARE NOW ALLOWED TO SING IN CHURCH – Although we do still have to wear face coverings.
We are now down to 1m distancing in the church on Sundays. This means that we can have more than 100 people. We are allowed to sing with face coverings on. This sounds awkward, but people seem to be getting used to it.
Please come to the main door as usual and we will redirect people if required. Face coverings will be required and we will be operating under the current restrictions with a one way system, 2m distancing and no singing.
There will also be an opportunity for up to 300 people to join using Zoom –

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.
