We are planning to start our morning services on Sunday 6th September.
In line with government guidelines, we will initially be limited to a maximum of 50 people per service. There will be no evening services during September, but we hope to be able to increase numbers and available services from October, subject to any changes in the government guidelines.
All of this is new and challenging, so we are starting off with a staged approach to get used to the various protocols that need to be followed. As such, there will be no Kids’ Church and Crèche provision in September. But we hope that by October there will be Kids' Church, Crèche and an in-person evening service.
Despite all these restrictions, we are so looking forward to welcoming you in church and to having the opportunity, at last, to worship with at least some of the St Columba’s family. God is good all the time!
We will be continuing to live stream services in the morning and the evening, and we would encourage you to meet in homes to worship together on the weeks that you are not in the building itself (please do remember to keep to the government guidelines). We have always encouraged this idea of church being much more than simply the gathering in the building on a Sunday - it is about people, and doing life together.
In the meantime, can we ask you to return the form below (contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any difficulties accessing it). It’s really important that you return this form if you wish to worship with us in person. We would love to welcome you back to church, and so please return the form below whether you are a regular at St Columba’s, if you are new to the city or if you are visiting us for the first time.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
