About us

What is Challengers?

"Challengers" is the name given to Blackhall St. Columba's Church Sunday School. We provide Christian education for children aged 3-10 years old on Sunday mornings during school term time.

Blackhall St. Columba's Church is a Church of Scotland congregation in Edinburgh Presbytery.

Where and when is Challengers?

The Children are split into three different age groups, with each group in one of the Church halls.

Age 3-5 years, meet in the small hall
Shooting Stars
Age 5-7 years, meet in the upper hall
Age 7-10 years, meet in the large hall

Challengers meet from 10:50am to 12noon and runs from September to June. On the first Sunday of most months and during the summer months there is a 9:30am family service instead of Challengers.

What happens at Challengers?

Our themes/storylines are all Christian based and we include drama, songs art and projects throughout the year.

Who runs Challengers?

All Challengers' staff are volunteers. There is a leader for each of the three groups, who is supported by helpers from the congregation and parents on a rota. There is a co-ordinator who liaises with the minister and Kirk Session.

Where can I get further information?

Have a chat with any of the leaders on a Sunday morning, or e-mail the Challengers Co-ordinator - challengers@blackhallstcolumba.org.uk
