How to find us
St. Columba’s is situated on St. Columba’s Close, CV1 4BX, but you might find it easier to find us from St. Nicholas Street, as you drive towards the Canal Basin. If you are walking from the City Centre then cross the ring road over the Canal Basin Bridge and head straight up the hill. The church is on the left hand side.
At the moment there are no regular activities at the church but you are welcome to join us at 10:30am each Sunday via zoom on this link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83142689496

The church building has closed whilst we follow the guidelines around Coronavirus. And each group that uses the building has had to bring their own service to an end. We know that this will cause difficulties for many people who rely on finding food here.
We believe that there will continue to be food in Broadgate on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday evening which will also be delivered to various hostels and hotels.
The Foodbank will continue to operate please check facebook.com/coventryfoodbank/
Feeding Coventry will be open Friday and Saturday 10am – 12 noon at Foleshill Community Centre. But check for latest information at www.facebook.com/FoleshillCommunityCentre/
