St. Columba to close church in Greenwood

The St. Columba congregation and Greenwood United Church Women’s group will continue to be active in the West Boundary.

It is with sad hearts that the small faithful congregation of St. Columba United Church in Greenwood has made the difficult decision to close the church building as of Jan. 1, 2017 with plans to sell the building and land.

St. Columba will be hosting the annual Christmas Eve candlelight service at 7 p.m.

The congregation is part of a three point charge with congregations in Christina Lake, Grand Forks, and Greenwood sharing one minister, Rev. Kim Horwood.

The St. Columba congregation and Greenwood United Church Women’s group will continue to be active in the West Boundary and are looking at suitable locations in Greenwood and Midway to hold Sunday’s services. Once determined, an announcement will be provided.

Contact the Boundary Pastoral Charge office at 250-442-3311.
