Newcomers to St. Columba’s often comment on the spirit of friendliness, openness and acceptance they receive. We are a gathered community, drawn from throughout the city and all walks of life. St. Columba’s offers a place of real belonging and deep engagement with each other. We look out for one another, we genuinely care for one another. However, we are also aware that the nurturing of our community life is not an end in itself. Our life together empowers us and impels us to reach out to the world around us, as active vessels of God’s justice and peace, God’s healing and love.
