Our Christmas fair is being held on Saturday 2nd December between 1pm and 3pm.

This is a great chance to grab a few Christmas bargains.  We'll have our usual Cake stall where you can perhaps grab a Christmas cake to save you baking.  There's also our raffle and tombola where you can perhaps be lucky and grab a stocking filler.

There's lots available for everyone so why not come along and see what's on offer.

You'll be made very welcome!

Sunday 2nd October at 10am

Harvest is always a special time in the church calendar where traditionally communities met to thank God for the abundance of the crops and success of the farmers around us.  Although it is still used for that purpose it is also a time for us to reflect on those who are less fortunate and don't have full cupboards.  At St Columba's we use our Harvest Festival to collect dried goods to distribute to the People's Kitchen in Newcastle and any fresh donations are given out around our local community.

Our Harvest Festival is always full of uplifting music, our children in the congregation are involved in the service and it's a lovely informal service.  So why not come along and join in?  Donations of goods are gladly accepted but your presence would be even more gratefully received.

Come and make some friends . . . We look forward to seeing you there.

We’re not just a church, we’re a community!

SUMMER FAIR Saturday 9th July

10am till 1pm

Our Summer Fair takes place on Saturday 9th July.  We are planning to have lots of activities for you to take part in.  We'll have a superb cake stall and I would suggest being there early to grab the best choice of cakes, buns, scones and biscuits.  We have some great cooks in our congregation and we all know there's nothing better than a home made cake.
We'll be serving snacks and drinks too so don't be afraid to come over lunch time as you can grab a sarnie, cake or two and enjoy the day out.
We'll be having our ever popular bottle tombola with some great prizes up for grabs and a couple of slightly less exciting ones.  From whiskey and wine to fruit shoots and coke there's always someone there for everyone.  If a lucky dip or two is your thing then there'll be our ever popular chocolate tombola too and if you're really lucky you might win on both - what more could you wish for?  Chocolate and fizz . . .
There's always something there for the kids too.  We have a toy stall where you can grab a bargain or two and perhaps even face painting or a bouncy castle?  There's a craft stall for those who love a bargain to get something homemade for birthdays, Christmas or even a treat for yourself. 
We also have our ever popular raffle where you can win anything from £50 cash, through to gift cards, meals out, wine and chocolates.  Loads of chances to win for everyone.
We're still planning this great day out so watch out for future updates.  We're booked some good weather for that weekend (we hope) so why not enjoy the sunshine by joining us for some fun for all the family.
See you there . . .
