The Interim Moderator and the Kirk Session are pleased to make the services and the facilities of St Columba Gaelic Church available to any couple who sincerely wish a Christian wedding service rather than a civil ceremony to celebrate their marriage.
Weddings can be conducted in Gaelic, or in English - or in a bit of both!
Despite being an open and inclusive congregation, we are not authorised to conduct same sex marriages. The Church of Scotland, as a denomination, has not so far approved this. We can however provide advice on alternative arrangements.
If you are interested in marrying in the Church, or have any other questions, please contact us by email or by completing the contact form on the Home Page. We regret that the church is currently closed for all services.
Funeral Services for members and adherents should be arranged through the Interim Moderator. If a Gaelic speaking minister is requested for any particular funeral, we will do our best to find one.
In the current emergency while restrictions are in force due to Coronavirus, the church is unavailable for services. Attendance at crematoria and graveside is also restricted to immediate family.
It is therefore possible to broadcast funerals (with the agreement of next of kin) on YouTube. This will mean that wider families and friends can sit in their homes and take part in a funeral service at around the same time as any service is being held for the immediate family in a crematorium or cemetery.
