CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 16th September 2020

Spott Parish Church is open for Private Prayer: A time to reflect and pray on Wednesday’s at 1:00 pm Commencing Wednesday 16th September and each Wednesday thereafter.




 You will have seen that the Church of Scotland has taken Government advice and ceased any acts of public worship and related activities in an effort to stop the spread of Coronavirus. While this means our buildings and facilities may close for a while, it doesn't mean that being the church closes. In the Facebook video below, I highlight a few of the immediate things we can put in place during this time of uncertainty. Please remain safe, look after one another and continue to be blessed and be a blessing to those in our community.

Yours in Jesus, Neil

Given the advice and stricter guidance coming from the Government over the last few days with regards to gathering of people, we have taken the decision NOT to open the church building for prayer as was previously planned. We are sorry that we aren’t able to do this but please continue to stay safe, comply with the guidance and pray for our community at this time. There will be prayer resources to aid in your prayer times made available at various points this week so keep checking our social media accounts for those. Yours in Jesus, Neil

Minister`s Annual Leave

Neil is on annual leave and will return on Tuesday 11th June 2019. Rev. Fred Harrison will be covering for him and he can be contacted on 07703527240 or by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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!”
