The Parish of Arbory and Castletown

Welcome to the Parish of
St Columba, Arbory & St Mary's on the Harbour, Castletown 

Welcome to the Parish of St Columba, Arbory and St Mary's on the Harbour, Castletown in the Diocese of Sodor and Man. We are one parish with two churches and two distinct worshipping communities. Whether you are a long time resident, new to the area, visiting or searching for a spiritual home we would love to welcome you.

We aim to share the life and love of Jesus with all people. Whether you are familiar with the Christian faith or you want to find out what Christians believe and what the Bible really has to say to us today, we hope our website will help answer some of your questions. Of course, we would love to meet you face to face and whether you are looking for a church to celebrate your wedding or child's baptism, family friendly worship or something a bit more traditional, or Biblical teaching in a world that has lost its way, we hope you will drop by and join us at one of our services.

St Columba is situated in Ballabeg and serves the ancient Parish of Arbory, which includes Ballabeg, Colby and the surrounding area.

St Mary's on the Harbour serves Castletown, the former ancient capital of the Island. In 1989, the church relocated from the former Garrison Church building to the converted school house on the harbour .
