Welcome to the website of St. Columba’s, the Anglican Parish Church of Crosspool. We are a diverse community of people who are united in our desire to draw closer to God through prayer and worship, and to live out Christ’s way of reconciling love in our everyday lives. We are very much a local church: just round the corner from the Crosspool shops, and here to welcome all who come through our doors, whether for a church service, for playgroup, a keep fit class or one of the many other activities that take place in our building. We hope you will enjoy exploring our site and that it will help you find out a bit more about us.

Eric was appointed to oversee St. Columba’s change from being a daughter church of St. John’s, Ranmoor, to become a parish church, a task he fulfilled with love, care and dedication. Linked to this was the preparation for the major re-ordering of the church interior to its present form.
A letter to the parish in 1992 from the church wardens shortly before Eric’s retirement and the completion of these changes commented on
‘Eric’s caring attitude and his open, friendly approach to everyone he meets, as well as his spiritual leadership, have endeared him to many people in Crosspool and we shall miss him greatly.’
The appropriateness of this comment was clearly borne out by the massive attendance at his farewell service in 1992. Since then, Eric has enjoyed some 25 years of very active retirement in Filey. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Laura, and their two sons, Paul and Ian, at this time.
