Update on church  

By Catherine McFie posted March 3rd, 2021

Dear Friends

I hope this finds you well.

The elders of the church met on the 8th February and agreed to the continued closure of the church up to and including Sunday 14th March. The elders meet again on the 8th March and will review the situation and we will let you all know of the outcome, especially with regards to Easter.

We are meeting on a Sunday morning for online services via 'Zoom' with our friends from St.Georges and Crosby URC. You are most welcome to join us online or by the telephone as zoom can be accessed both ways. We have produced a guide to getting on zoom and if you need further help simply drop us line. The information for the services is published in the weekly notices or again just drop us a line for the details.

Zoom is helping us through these uncertain times and we have included a Lent Bible Study on a Wednesday morning (10:30am) or a Thursday afternoon (2pm). Again if you would like to join the Bible Study just drop us a line and we will be delighted to let you have the details.

Finally realising how some people in our church family and communities are struggling not having contact with their friends we are introducing a new Coffee, Chat and Craft morning on Zoom this takes place on the 2nd Tuesday of the month and starts at 10:30am. You can pop in and out or stay for the duration of the meeting again if you need the details just drop us a line.

I will continue to hold you in prayer. If you need help during this time please contact myself or an Elder and we will try our best to support you. My contact details are below. We will keep you informed via the weekly notice sheet.

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.
