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.

Thy Kingdom Come 24 hour Prayer Sessions
Thank you to all who participated in the first Thy Kingdom Come prayer sessions on the 9th/10th May, feedback has been very positive. Our church will be another 24 hour prayer session for praying into Pentecost. The Eden room at Dunbar Parish Church will become our prayer room and it will be open to all who want to come and spend time with God, praying for his Kingdom to come here on Earth. You can sign up in one hour slots and are welcome to sign up for as many slots you like. It would be great to have at least 2 people for each slot so if you are flexible and can fill in a slot that would be great. Please note that there is no limit on numbers for each slot, so if the two spots are already taken don't worry, just come along anyway! To view the current schedule please click the links below:
