ColumbaFest

A seasonal celebration of faith, culture, politics and creativity

Small is beautiful, and we hope that will be true of this year’s ColumbaFest. Modest in size, still magnificent in saintly resonance. Columba was a missionary and evangelist, titles that may now evoke embarrassment as much as inspiration. So how do we talk of the things of God, and of our meaning-making, and what if the sharing of stories is a sacred act?

Join our day of facilitated conversation, pilgrimage, artistic experimenting, worship and communal singing. Real people, food and refreshment, hospitality for body and soul.

Saturday 11th June 2022, 10.30am – 6pm.
Govan & Linthouse
Parish Church, Glasgow, G51 2YL.
