Saint Columba URC Liverpool
Welcome to the Saint Columba URC Liverpool website. We are a United Reformed Church located in Hunts Cross, Liverpool and we are part of the Mersey Synod. We are located closely to the train station and bus stops in the Hunts Cross area for a map of how to find us click here.
We have a moderate sized congregation and we are keen to keep our church moving forward with Alan (our minister) and the Holy Spirits help.
We are a community minded church and so we like to offer our facilities for the wider community of Hunts Cross where possible. We also make the church available for weddings and funerals by contacting our minister Revd. Alan Crump (07854259528). Our church building is registered for marriage services between a man and a woman. It is not registered for marriages of same-sex couples.
***We are sorry but our parent and toddler group is full, if you would like to be placed on our waiting list please use the contact us link in the menu above and leave your contact details we will contact you as soon as a place becomes available.***
We have recently started a parent and toddler group on a Friday morning at 10am til 12 noon which is aimed at children up to the age of 4, as we identified the need to give parents the opportunity to meet with other parents informally and in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and let the children play in a safe and secure enviroment.

Again for the children of the area we have a Pilots group that is run on a Wednesday evening at 6:45pm and is aimed at children from the age of 5 years and upward. How this Pilots group started was a real blessing from God (click here to read more).
Every week on a Wednesday morning we run our successful 'Coffee Pot' which is used by many of the local community of Hunts Cross. There are regular visits from the police to chat about issues people may be facing, Alan is normally available for pastoral guidance and help.
We have other community led groups using the hall through the week such as slimming world, a childrens dance group, Tuesday friendship group, police forums, baby sensory play, stamp fairs, gentle keep fit, taekwondo, Lancashire lacemakers group as well as working closely with the local health centre for open days.
We are currently enjoying a joint pastorate with our new sister church St. James in the nearby Woolton Village. We have a busy and vibrant church life and we enjoy different styles of worship and enjoy the fellowship with our extended church family and a variety of visiting ministers and lay preachers as well as enjoying services given by our own minister Rev. Alan Crump once a month. Our Sunday morning worship starts at 10:45am and communion is given once a month (click here to see upcoming dates).
As you can see there is something for everyone at some point during the week at Saint Columba. If you would like to know more about when a particular group meets and what days and times etc. Then please don't hesitate to contact us and we will reply as swiftly as we can, or pop into coffee pot on a Wednesday morning 10 - 12 noon or church on a Sunday and we will be delighted to help you.
Saint Columba URC LIverpool is also proud to be an accredited Fairtrade church, by that we mean where possible on church premises all of the products that we use are Fairtrade products ensuring a better deal for farmers and workers throughout the world. We have promoted Fairtrade for many years now and we are proud to continue to do so.
Please enjoy your time on our website and we hope it challenges and inspires you to visit us in person to share worship on a Sunday morning or pop in for a cuppa' and a natter on a Wednesday morning at the Coffee Pot.
