Welcome to St. Columba's

We are a hybrid church community located in Dayton, Ohio.

Our mission is to serve our neighbors in love

and to reflect a light of hope into the world.

We are a young community with an ancient heritage that seeks to live out the fullness of the ancient Christian faith, through our Anglican heritage and Celtic spirituality. 

Stay with us for a moment or a season.

Take a sit, have a breath, and join us on the way.

What is a hybrid church?

St. Columba the Exile

A hybrid church is first and foremost, a church! At St. Columba's we are people gathered around our shared beliefs in Jesus Christ. We are on the journey of faith together, just a little differently. Currently, our focus is not on gathering physically but digitally as we navigate our way through the global pandemic.


We are the church without walls. 

We are a global community of Christians.

We are on a mission for Jesus Christ in the digital age.

Our Life of Service and Prayer

Sursum Corda: Lift up Your Hearts

We are connecting; whether that means by a digital platform or social media, gathering in solidarity for the least in our communities, or sharing our experiences of the divine presence in our lives.

Be a bright flame before me, O God


A guiding star above me.

Be a smooth path below me,

A kindly shepherd behind me

Today, tonight, and for ever.

- Prayer of St. Columba
