The Chapel of St Columba offers monthly (except January) evening eucharistic services in the Celtic Christian & Liberal Catholic Traditions  Our services celebrate the Christian Holy Days and Seasonal Festivals of the year by combining the beauty of traditional sacramental worship and liturgy with a nature-centered, contemplative, and mystical approach to Christian Spirituality. 

The Chapel is a chartered ministry of The Catholic Apostolic Church of Antioch, an independent sacramental church grounded in the Christian Mystical Tradition.  The Church was founded in 1958 by German born Herman Adrian Spruit who had been consecrated a bishop by Charles Hampton, the Presiding Bishop of the Liberal Catholic Church for the USA. The Apostolic succession of the church come from the Roman Catholic Church, through the Dutch/German Old Catholic Church and the Liberal Catholic Church in England, as well as through Orthodox, and Anglican lineages (via the Scottish Episcopal Church).

 mystical & Celtic christianity

Christian Mysticism draws on ancient religious and monastic traditions, yet this spiritual path is relevant for the contemporary world today. The Contemplative tradition incorporates prayer, meditation, and reflection on Sacred Writings (Lectio Divina). Through a deep personal spiritual journey a close relationship to Christ, Mary and the Saints is developed. Revering nature as God's Creation and utilising  sacred music, art, and poetry in worship are integral elements of Celtic Spiritual and Monastic traditions.
