  The Columba Heritage trail embodies the essence of the Churches Trust enabling us to articulate key messages from our Christian forefathers to celebrate our common Christian heritage and to provide an opportunity for reflection and healing.

The project through a series of workshops, presentations, talks, interactive exercises and study visits, will create an opportunity to develop meaningful and sustained contact between people from perceived different community and faith tradition backgrounds, who together will explore a common interest of Christian heritage and Columba.
