Worship of God takes us out of ourselves as we learn to move beyond our own small ways of looking at the world, ourselves, and others into a light that makes the reality of the world and life more easily visible. As we worship we learn to love God and are invited to look out ourselves, the world, and each other in the light of God’s love.

We have a variety of styles of worship at St Columba’s ranging from traditional Sunday worship through to all age worship, as well as regular times for daily prayer.

8am Sundays

Our first service each Sunday is according to the traditional Book of Common Prayer. You will find the beautiful language of this service uplifting as we reflect on Scripture, pray, and receive Holy Communion.

9:30am Sundays 

Our 9.30am service each Sunday in the church is a helpful mixture of formality and informality. In this service we follow the order of service for Holy Communion in A Prayer Book for Australia, and enjoy singing, music videos, and the choir once a month.

The Almost Like Church group.

Almost Like Church (ALCh) in the Church

Children are always welcome at our Sunday services. Throughout the year ALCh in the Church is run inside the 9.30am service providing a children’s reflection and activities with Julie.

5pm Wednesday Evening Prayer

Each Wednesday at 5pm join us for Evening Prayer on Facebook or our Youtube channel. Listen and pray or join in using the Prayer Book. The service can be accessed in A Prayer Book for Australia, page 404. The Psalms begin on page 224. Just find the particular Psalm once it is announced. Alternatively, search in the app store for Epray. Once downloaded, follow the prompts and click on Evening Prayer.

10.30am Thursday

Our Thursday morning weekday service is a quieter, smaller gathering as we pray and listen to Scripture, and celebrate Holy Communion according to the Book of Common Prayer.

9:45am Friday

On Friday mornings (in school term) we gather for morning prayer which takes about 20 minutes. This is a great way to learn to pray as we pray together week by week. And once learned, this style of morning prayer from the prayer book can be used each morning and evening at home. Morning Prayer is followed by morning tea, and then we gather at at 10.30am for a bible study. You are welcome to join us for any or all our Friday activities!

Music and Singing

We enjoy a range of music at St Columba’s. The St Columba’s choir is a well-known local choir singing at church once a month as well as Easter and Christmas. (New members welcome.)

Our pipe organ makes beautiful music to accompany both the choir and congregational singing. (Instrumentalists also welcome!)

We also enjoy music videos and other recordings during our worship on Sunday.
