Time to Reseed
How would you like to be part of a church that is looking to revitalise its life?
To be a new seed in a long established garden?
To be at the early stages of a church taking a new direction?
St. Columba’s is a bustling community centre near to the Canal Basin.
- From December to March we host the Coventry Winter Night Shelter 2 nights a week,
- On Monday mornings, Wednesday and Friday evenings people who want a free meal and some company provided by Coventry Comfort Carers and Wednesday Welcome create lively community times.
- We host a Men’s group for CRMC,
- A meeting of AA,
- An Ethiopian Orthodox Church
- and other occasional groups.
But most of all we are a Christian church holding our community in prayer.
However, the congregation and members who are the spiritual heart of this community are growing tired and infirm. In January 2019 we seriously considered closure but decided that God has not finished with us yet – we have a ministry that is valued by many and people who are still looking forward. In April we will begin a Messy Church and will be joined by a Church Related Community Work Minister – because the wider United Reformed Church also believes that God has not finished with us.
Everything we do depends upon a worshipping Christian community at its heart. So we are seeking some new people;
- who feel that God is calling them to help a church be re-seeded and grow again;
- who can feel God calling them to work in this community in a forgotten part of Radford,
- who have a heart for a church that serves a variety of vulnerable communities.
We don’t need lots of people, we need a few people willing to join this congregation, become members and move quite quickly into leadership roles. Ideally you will be in good standing within your own church and come with their blessing. Most of all you will want to share in helping God’s work flourish in this little corner of Coventry.
If you would like to know more you can come and see us one Sunday morning, speak with our Minister Craig Muir – 02476 264264, have a look around the rest of this website but most of all, ask the question – “Is this where God is calling me to be?”
