Statement of Interest

Ecclesiastical building in use as such. Haynes mentions a 'tall fleche' but only the base remains. During the late 19th century an influx of mill workers from England, all of whom were required to attend church on Sundays in order to retain their employment at the Stanley Mills, escalated the need for an Episcopalian Church. The building of St Columba's commenced in 1897, at which time services were held in the Temperance Hall in East Brougham Street, and the church was opened on 7th July, 1898 by the Rev G H Wilkinson, Bishop of the United Diocese. A dedication service took place on 17th August, 1898. A new organ, funded by Mrs Esme Burges, was installed during the 1960s. At the time of listing (2002) the church hall, sited to the rear at right angles, built 1907 and closed before 1970, is in a poor state of repair.
