Our Church

A warm welcome awaits visitors.  Our vision is to be a source of inspiration and compassion for the community.

St Columba’s is an Anglican church, situated in Wideopen and covers the areas of Seaton Burn, Wideopen and North Gosforth.  We affirm that the Church’s mission, in obedience with Holy Scripture is to proclaim the unfailing love of God in every generation.

We believe this to be Good News for all people. We are a friendly, inclusive and outward looking church serving the community.  St Columba’s is in the moderate catholic tradition of the Church of England.  At our services, you will find well-known hymns and a short sermon as well as activities for children.  Sermons explore the meaning of the Gospel for today. We are particularly concerned to use the church building for the good of the community.
