St. Columba Church, 300 St Vincent Street
The Kirk Session and congregation have agreed that the church building at 300 St Vincent Street, now permanently closed, be offered for sale. At a meeting of the Presbytery of Glasgow on 8th March 2022 the decision of the congregation was approved. The matter has been passed to the General Trustees for action.
At a meeting of the Kirk Session on 27th April 2022, the Session agreed to seek a Linkage with the congregation of Blawarthill Parish Church. This request has been conveyed to the NW Glasgow Cluster Group who have to oversee ministry and mission for the whole Cluster. The Cluster comprises Blawarthill, Broomhill Hyndland, Jordanhill, St John's-Renfield and St Columba Gaelic congregations.
G. Melvyn Wood, Interim Moderator
It is no longer mandatory to wear face coverings in places of worship. In view of the continuing high prevalence of Covid, we ask those who use our building to remain considerate of others, to keep wearing masks if they feel vulnerable, and to wash hands frequently and use our hand sanitiser when entering or leaving.

Giving to the Church
At a time of considerable change in the life of our congregation, we are anxious to maintain our income stream. The costs of keeping our unique witness alive both in Gaelic and in English, while we transition from our old church and plan new ways of reaching the Gaelic community, are ongoing. One way for members to maintain their regular offerings, and for donors to support our ministry, with one-off or monthly donations, is to give online. The Church of Scotland has now made this possible for all congregations. Click the button below. Then choose "Donate to a Congregation". Type in "Glasgow St Columba" and please agree to Gift Aid your donation if you are a taxpayer. Thank you! Tapadh leat!
