Supporting Causes

St Columba's URC seeks to support the local, national and world communities. This is manifested in the forms of prayer, action and financial giving.

Weekly activities

Our church services incorporate prayers for those in need, such as people located in areas of famine, drought, natural disasters and conflict. We also have a Fair Trade stall in the church hall after Sunday services, and money given towards the after-service refreshments is donated to a charity.

Special financial collections

St Columba's URC regularly holds special financial collections during its church services. These focus on specific causes.  These collections are usually held on communion Sundays [for more information, see Sunday Worship]. However, they also occur throughout the year, as-and-when required.

Food and produce collections

Food and produce collections are also a regular activity for St Columba's URC. Members of the congregation are invited to bring such goods to our communion Sundays [for more information, see Sunday Worship]. These contributions are provided to causes such as Asylum Welcome and Community Emergency Foodbank.
