Welcome to St Columba’s Church
We are a friendly and welcoming church in the heart of Wideopen, also serving Seaton Burn and North Gosforth, with a congregation drawn from across these communities and beyond. We welcome all in Christ’s name. We are part of the Christ the King Team Parish.

Thank you for your continuing support for St Columba’s through this challenging time and we will continue to pray for you all in the weeks ahead.
‘All shall be well, all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well’ – Julian of Norwich writing at the time of the Black Death.
We are at a critical moment for the health of our planet – and for the future particularly of our children and grandchildren. This year we are aiming to do more activities to highlight the importance of our environment. We will keep you posted.
We give thanks for the life of our late Queen Elizabeth. We give thanks for the example she has given us as Christians.
She openly and generously offered her time and her love – her presence with people – and they took new life from her. She was steadfast in her service to the very end.
We are deeply grateful. We pray that she will rest in peace.
As we move forward in the coming weeks and months may we too be present for our neighbours and bring them life.

A warm and Inclusive welcome
We are very pleased to report that we are now recognised as part of Inclusive Church – a network of churches, groups and individuals uniting together around a shared vision:
“We believe in inclusive Church – a church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate. We will continue to challenge the church where it continues to discriminate against people on grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, neurodiversity, or sexuality. We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
