Church Services

St Columba's Pulpit

Morning services in person are currently 45 minutes long

  • Worshippers no longer need to pre-book their seat, but should still leave the building before stopping to socialise
  • Chairs in the worship area will be linked back together – couples, families, and those in a ‘social bubble’ may sit together, whilst space for individuals who wish or need to maintain distancing (using red cards on seats) will also be respected
  • Face masks will only be required when singing (but it’s also absolutely fine to wear one throughout the service)
  • More worshippers will now be able to participate through Bible-reading and leading prayers
  • Sanitising of hands upon entry to and exit from the building will be maintained

From 3 October,  we will begin offering refreshments in the church hall after the service

From 7 November, we will resume in person Communion on the first Sunday of each month

We also offer an online Communion service on the first Sunday of each month

For instructions on attending online, see the Weekly Update

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the heating system at St Columba’s URC is out of action. We are currently in the process of trying to get the system repaired, however, we know for certain that it won’t be repaired for 24 October, which means that it will be very cold in church when you arrive for worship so we ask that you please dress accordingly.  The service will be slightly shorter (30 rather than 45 minutes).
