In June 2015 an extensive private library was gifted from the estate of the late
Prue Neild – a respected member and Elder Emerita of this Church. The Prue
Neild Collection forms the basis of Columba Library which also includes other
books donated previously.
Its purpose is to maintain a unique local resource which encourages exploration
and deeper understanding of Christian heritage and its contemporary
relevance. It is a collection of books which are reflective of contemporary
philosophy, scientific thought, spirituality and theological enquiry.
With the above criteria in mind, further donations of books are welcomed.
These may be made through the church office. Each gift will be accepted with
gratitude and assessed as to its suitability. Should a book be deemed to fall
outside the criteria for inclusion it shall firstly be offered back to the donor, and
thereafter to other libraries and collections.
