Come and meet Neil and Elizabeth Watson

Neil would like to invite you to meet with him and his wife Elizabeth on Wednesday 6th December in Spott Community Hall between 7 and 9 pm.

Neil welcomes the opportunity, through this get-together, to give you an insight into who he is and hear his initial thoughts on the way ahead. But more importantly, it will give Neil the chance to really get to know you, the people, at the heart of Spott Church.

New Youth Group for S1 to S6: Some young people are starting a group for S1 to S6 in Dunbar Parish Church Hall every second Sunday evening from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm starting on Sunday 12th November 2017.

The aim of the Group is to encourage young people in their faith, and will include games, chat, and exploring the Bible. The next sessions will be on the 26th November and the 10th December and will continue after the festive holiday period.

Please support the young people who are leading the group. They need adults to be there as a support, and people to provide juice and crisps. If you can help, contact Hazel Gray on 07870 849737 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Enough supporters could mean an 8-week rota or so.

Reverend Neil Watson’s first day at work

Neil’s first day at work took place in Spott Parish church on Sunday 8th October 2017 at 10.00 am. As is the custom in the Church of Scotland, a new Minister is “Preached in” and this honour was performed very proudly by his Father, the Reverend Mike Watson who is currently the locum at Cockenzie and Port Seton :Chalmer’s Memorial Church.



After the “Preaching in” component part of the service, Neil administered his first Sacrament of Holy Communion. The service was very well attended and Neil’s wife Elizabeth and his Mother Jacqui were in the Congregation watching proudly.


The ordination of Neil Watson will take place at Belhaven Parish Church on Thursday 5th October at 7.00 pm to which all are welcome. There will be nibbles and refreshment served in the church hall after the Ordination Service.
