More Authorised Lay Ministers in the Parish

After training for a year before Lockdown, Nicola and Bernie finally received their authorisations as Lay Ministers for Worship within the Parish of Christ the King. They join Marjorie (also a Lay Minister for Worship) and Mary (Lay Minister for Pastoral Care) both based at St Columba’s. They will gradually be helping the rest of the team in providing worship and developing new things too. 

Lent discussions 2021

This year on Zoom! 

You are warmly invited to join in the Lent discussions that are taking place across the Parish of Christ the King this year.

Sessions will focus on The Beatitudes as a tool for thinking about all that we have been travelling through, and the Christian vision for the world going forward.

There will be two, possibly three, different groups on Zoom this year. All are welcome to participate. Times tbc


We can’t have our ecumenical Lent Lunches this year…


Perhaps you could have a soup bread and cheese lunch each Wednesday, and make a donation to Christian Aid – either directly or through our website?

(Link at the bottom of the home page – please note that the donation is for Christian Aid)

Coronavirus – Prayer wherever we are

Some of us at St Columba’s have agreed to pray together (wherever we are… on the bus, at work or at home) at 12:00 midday (or if that is not possible at 6:00 pm) for the current situation that we face together.
Remember that there will be people praying at the same time with the same purpose. Thank you if you can join us.

Jesus, people came to you when they were in trouble or in pain.
Friends carried them, strangers told you about them, some met you walking along the road…
In this time of uncertainty hear us now as we bring to you those who are sick across the world. Sustain and support those involved in care and research.
Guide all who make decisions about health and wellbeing in this community and beyond.
Be with the anxious – remind us not to be afraid, but to trust in you, knowing that nothing can separate us from your love. Amen

You may also wish to pray the Lord’s prayer…
