How to find us
Our church hall is at 32A High Street Dunbar.
Our minister and his family
The Reverend Gordon Stevenson lives with his wife and two boys in Dunbar, as their two daughters are now away at University. Gordon was called to Dunbar in 2010. Over the last eight years, our church has seen God at work in many different ways; lives transformed, people called into full time ministry etc. We believe that we are a family learning and serving Jesus together so that we might discover God's vision for the church and share it with everyone.
Sunday Morning Service
Our services are held every Sunday at 11 am and typically runs until 12:15 pm. It is the main gathering of our Church, where we come together to worship and learn more about our God through singing hymns and praise songs, prayer and biblical teaching. All are welcome to come and share in fellowship with us as we grow together in our faith in Jesus Christ.
Prayer is at the heart of our church life. Click on the image to find out more.
