Welcome to St Columba…

"Take a look inside St Columba 
and you'll find people just like you.

It's a community of people from all walks of life and backgrounds 
who together share in the highs and lows, doubts and fears, 
hopes and dreams for our lives, families and communities.

We are real and straight up and have found 
through Jesus Christ a way of living
where life and faith truly connect...

if you are looking for a place to belong, grow, recover or serve, 
you'll find a warm welcome home at St Columba."


It's the Easter season, with its invitation to think again:

Jesus, and death and resurrection -for hope and love and life;

May indifference die and interest rise.


"When Jesus came to Auckland

they simply passed him by.

They never hurt a hair of him

they simply let him die.

For men had grown more tender

and they would not give him pain.

They only just passed down the street

and left him in the rain.


Still Jesus cried, 'Forgive them, for they

know not what they do.'

And still it rained the wintry rain

that drenched him through and through.

The crowds went home and left the streets

without a soul to see.

And Jesus crouched against the wall

and cried for Calvary."
