Update on church  

By Catherine McFie posted April 17th, 2021

Dear Friends

I pray that this finds you well.

I would like to take this opportunity to bring you news of three things that are happening within our church community.

Firstly, we will be returning to in-person worship on Sunday 23rd May and services will be held weekly as normal. As with the previous times we have met together there are restrictions in place and these include:

  • Wearing a face mask while in the service (unless medically exempt)
  • Maintaining a 2m social distancing.
  • Following the one way system.
  • Unfortunately there will be no singing although music will play its part in the service.
  • Names will be recorded to support NHS test and trace system.

Secondly, with the return to in-person worship the Sunday morning Zoom service finished on Sunday 16th May. Instead we will be launching an evening zoom service on the first and third Sunday of the month, starting at 6:45pm. The content of this service will be different to the morning service or worship booklet. We will trial these services over the summer and review them in September.

Lastly, I am organising monthly bible studies which will look at a different topic each month. This means the each study is stand alone and people are free to pop in and out over the months as they wish. The first study will be on Wednesday 26th May at 10:30am or Thursday 27th May at 2pm and we will be looking at Prayer and whether our prayers are sometimes unanswered. Studies will be held on zoom at least until August when we will review the possibililty of meeting in person.

We will also continue with our Coffee, Chat and Craft morning which meets on the second Tuesday of the month on Zoom starting at 10:30am.

I am hoping to start visiting members of the congregation as restrictions continue to ease and I will be in touch in due course. As always my contact details are

  • Email Catherine click here
  • Phone: 0151 474 0913
  • Mobile: 07874048959
  • If you require any zoom information simply contact us and we will reply as soon as possible with the relevant information.

    Take care, stay safe and God bless.

Welcome to St. Columba URC Liverpool

Welcome to the Saint Columba URC Liverpool website. We are a United Reformed Church located in Hunts Cross, Liverpool and we are part of the Mersey Synod. We are located closely to the train station and bus stops in the Hunts Cross area for a map of how to find us click here.

We have a moderate sized congregation and we are keen to keep our church moving forward with the Holy Spirits help.

We are a community minded church and so we like to offer our facilities for the wider community of Hunts Cross where possible. We also make the church available for weddings and funerals by contacting our church secretary Mrs I.Meek(07854259528). Our church building is registered for marriage services between a man and a woman. It is not registered for marriages of same-sex couples.

Our hall is used everyday with a range of groups meeting in it. We have Baby Sensory, Prize Bingo, Slimming World, Tuesday Friendship Group, Craft Group, Coffee Pot, Police Forums, Pilots, Gentle Keep Fit, Taekwondo, Stamp Fairs and the Lancashire Lacemakers group as well as working closely with our neighbours the local health centre for open days and making the Hall available for any new initiatives as well as childrens parties.

As you can see there is something for everyone at some point during the week at Saint Columba. If you would like to know more about when a particular group meets and what days and times etc. Then please don't hesitate to contact us and we will reply as swiftly as we can, or pop into coffee pot on a Wednesday morning 10 - 12 noon or church on a Sunday and we will be delighted to help you.

Saint Columba URC LIverpool is also proud to be an accredited Fairtrade church, by that we mean were possible on church premises all of the products that we use are Fairtrade products ensuring a better deal for farmers and workers throughout the world. We have promoted Fairtrade for many years now and we are proud to continue to do so.

Please enjoy your time on our website and we hope it challenges and inspires you to visit us in person to share worship on a Sunday morning or pop in for a cuppa' and a natter on a Wednesday morning at the Coffee Pot. Or just enjoy the facilities for a group that meets in the hall.

Sunday Worship

Saint Columba URC Liverpool is open for morning worship every Sunday morning.

 The service starts at 10:45 am and is approximately 1 hour in duration followed by coffee after the service which is a chance to catch up with friends and our extended church family.  

We have a Sunday School for the children which is led by Colette and Isabella.  

Why not join us and let us extend a warm welcome to you. 

Pilots

Pilots is a non uniformed organisation but children can work towards badges in areas of service, interest, talents, overseas, worship and prayer. Pilots is the fastest growing part of the URC and St.Columba is excited to be part of it.

Hall Diary and Bookings

Saint Columba URC Liverpool have quite a few different groups and organisations using their premises week to week. Not all of our groups are religious and so there is something to capture the imagination of most people.
