Christian Aid 2017

Christian Aid Week: 14-20 May 2017 – Get Involved:

Sunday Breakfast & Collection Friday

On Sunday 7th May (10.00-10.45am) we are holding a congregational breakfast at which a speaker from Christian Aid will explain this year’s campaign and answer some of the questions collectors sometimes get asked. These activities give us a great chance to assist Christian Aid and some of the world’s poorest, who it serves. St Columba’s has permission to collect at Victoria & Green Park Stations on Friday 19 May between 7.00am and 7.00pm, as part of Christian Aid Week. Thirty six volunteer collectors, giving two hours each, would ensure maximum coverage. If you are able to help, please give your name to the Church Office by telephone 02075842321 or



Sermon Preached by the Moderator

On Sunday 21 September 2014, the Right Reverend John Chalmers, Moderator of the Church of Scotland, preached at St Giles Cathedral. You can follow the whole service via the Church of Scotland website, including the music and readings (which were so extraordinarily relevant to the exploration of values and fairness that had been at the heart of so much of the referendum discussion, though they were from the prescribed lectionary readings for the 14th Sunday after Trinity and not chosen specially for the theme of the service).
