St Columba’s is part of the Church of Scotland. Many of the congregation have Scottish or Presbyterian connections but certainly not all. We have a lively mix of nationalities and denominations, ages and life experiences, members and visitors.
St Columba’s combines activity, peace and prayer. Many groups meet throughout the week; school children, Alcoholics Anonymous, the Night Shelter for Homeless Guests, congregational meals, musical events and Scottish Country dancing – our church witnesses plenty of life. All the while, through Sunday worship and the services that mark the great events of life we worship God and grow together.
In September St Columba’s holds its annual Stewardship Month. It is the opportunity to say thank you for past support and encourage renewed involvement in our shared life of faith. This year we seek to appreciate, celebrate and share Talents; God-given, wondrously varied and bestowed on all of us.
Visits to the Royal Ballet School and Queens Park Rangers Football Club; a former Olympian guest speaker; a St Columba’s “Scratch” orchestra; a communal clean-up morning at Church and a Family Ceilidh – are some of our plans. Engaging and celebratory – our aim is to blend worship and activity to “enhance the life of our community and deepen friendships.” It starts with a fun family event: Cup Cake Decorating Competition on Rededication Sunday (11th September.) Discover your talent!
Whether you are interested in an activity, seeking a quiet haven or a church community, from wherever you hail, and whatever your tradition, we hope you will find your way to this beautiful church, lively community and home away from home.
