The date of when the chuch was buit in Unknown. It began a a chapel of rest for those on the Herring trail which was used by people bringing home a stock of salted herring for winter use and also by fishwives carrying huge creels of herring from Dunbar to the markets in Lauder. The church was also used by pilgrims on their way to Iona. The church is located close to the Holy St Johns well which may also be a reason for visiting Spott Church.
The Church has seen many changes and survived the reformation, the burning of witches and battles of Dunbar in 1296 and 1650.
Further reading of the history of the church and its ministers can be found on a leaflet entitled `600 Years of History` within the church.
Booking your place for Sunday services
We extend a warm welcome to everyone attending Spott Church which is linked to Belhaven Parish Church in Dunbar.
Neil Watson became the minister of Belhaven Parish Church in October 2017. Put forward as a candidate for ministry by Lothian Presbytery and trained at New College in Edinburgh, Neil is married to Elizabeth and they share the manse with their Jack Russell Terrier, Rudi.
Coming to the realisation himself that this life is not the only thing on offer but that there is hope, comfort and meaning to be had through an everlasting relationship with God, through Jesus, Neil loves sharing that with the people of Belhaven, Spott and the wider Dunbar area.
Having grown up and lived in the Lothians all his life, Neil is passionate about seeing God move throughout its counties, so it is an absolute privilege for him to be called by God to minister in East Lothian.
“I am excited about the journey God has in store for us and hope to be the minister here for many years to come!”
