Welcome

National Lockdown & Vaccination News

The PCC of St Columba have taken the decision to suspend all face to face worship for the time being. Sunday services are available via Zoom. Please email iain.lothian@stcolumbacrosspool.org.uk if you need the log in details (these are the same each week).

We believe at this critical time, if we can reduce the risk in any way it helps the common good.

On a more positive note St Columba’s Church will be used as a vaccination hub on the 9th, 10th and 11th January for those invited to attend by the Crosspool surgeries.

Giving

If you normally give to church by envelope or via the plate on a Sunday, and would like to continue to give while the church building is closed, please consider setting up a standing order or making a one-off donation via your bank, either online or by telephone. The account details for St. Columba’s account are as follows:

Church of St Columba || S/C 05-08-18 || A/C  33146413 || Yorkshire Bank

 
 
Night Prayer

The prayer follows the usual compline pattern but this time we have left a 5 minute space for people to choose their own reading and reflection so that the service can be used nightly. It provides a lovely peaceful ending of the day for me and I’m hoping it might do the same for some of you: 

 

We are just round the corner from the Crosspool shops, and here to welcome all who come through our doors, whether for a church service, for Lunch Club, a keep fit class or one of the many other activities that take place in our building.


As a community we endeavour to:

  • be an inclusive church which celebrates human diversity and welcomes all.
  • create a space where people can grow in their faith, can question and discover the sacred in life through openness, struggle, laughter, prayer and worship.
  • support one another through mutual care and hospitality.
  • be alert to the needs of our local community and the wider world, having a commitment to be in solidarity with those who are marginalised and isolated.
  • celebrate life in all its fullness and cherish creation.

We don’t manage it all the time, so when we stumble and fall, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and try again.

  • Happy New Year

    4th January, 2021

    We want to let you know of changes to some arrangements, which are due to the evolving situation regarding Covid vaccinations starting at St Columba’s next week.

    It is wonderful that our churches can serve the community in this way, and you may be aware that
    Brenda Nelson and a small team of us has been working with the GP Practices to facilitate the
    necessary strategy. Of course, the rapidly changing situation has caused much extra work and the
    task is a huge undertaking.

    So, in practical terms, the following events will be happening over the next week….

    Wednesday 6th January 10am Morning Prayer at Stephen Hill

    Thursday 7th January 10am Private Prayer at Stephen Hill

    Sunday 10th January 10.30 Morning Worship at Stephen Hill

    Please email admin@stcolumbacrosspool.org.uk if you do not have the Zoom log in information.

    We also feel it important to emphasise the need to stay safe and not to feel any sense of duty to
    attend church; there are concerns arising from spread of infection and icy conditions and we should
    try to be responsible and help protect our friends in the hospitals and the emergency services. If you
    are intending to attend the Sunday Services, please let Brenda Nelson know on 07835455562 or at
    bj.nelson@btopenworld.com
