Doors open at St. Columba’s

Doors Open weekend saw around 350 people visit our church and garden.  In church people could watch a video on the life of Columba, while children (and adults) shared in activities based on the life of St Columba: making coracles out of walnut shells; decorating illuminated letters in a Scriptorium; and making a mural of Columba banishing the monster in the River Ness.

Many people had shared in Doors Open for several years and were keen to visit a new place, and they commented on the simple beauty of the church or the wonderful surprise that is the church garden.  Countless conversations with the team of welcomers were shared and refreshments enjoyed.
