What to Expect

  • Expect a warm welcome from the welcome team on the door, approachable helpers to offer you any assistance, and a relatively informal service in the relaxed atmosphere of our sanctuary.

  • Expect a well attended congregation at the morning service most weeks, including children. After the New Year, we hope to start an evening service on the last Sunday of the month. 

  • Expect notices - churches always do notices!

  • Expect music and singing - because we love to sing praise to God for all his goodness to us.

  • Expect a young people's talk - an important part of the service, and an indication that our children are an integral part of the church; also, admittedly, often the funniest part of the service.

  • Expect prayers - one of the things we do in church is to pray, because we want to express our dependence on the God who is all-wise and all-powerful.

  • Expect to read the Bible - because we believe that this is how we hear the voice of God today, and that as Christians our lives should be governed by the Word of God.

  • Expect Bible teaching - because the Bible is a book that needs to be considered carefully and applied to our lives rigorously.

  • Expect not to be singled out for anything embarrassing.

  • Expect not to be asked for money - unless you're a committed part of the life of Blackhall St. Columba's Church in which case giving is part of your Christian discipleship.

  • Expect opportunities to get to know others, especially over tea or coffee after the morning and evening services.

We invite you to join us!
