    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

Welcome to the St Columba’s website

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.

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.

About Us

St Columba’s has a rich and interesting history and has become a home from home for many Scots who have moved down from Scotland. We also attract many other nationalities, perhaps because they have Scottish or Presbyterian ancestors, or because something drew them into the Church, for example a Baptism, Scottish Country Dancing or the Night Shelter and they decided they liked the atmosphere and that they would like to be part of it.
