We will be starting a prayer meeting in the sanctuary of Spott Parish Church on Wednesday 7 March 2018, from 7:30-8:30pm.

This meeting is open to all who want to explore prayer more deeply or would like to be prayed for.

We will begin by singing a couple of worship songs and will then hear a short talk on prayer from our minister, Neil, before breaking off to pray at individual prayer stations that will be set up around the sanctuary. These stations will cover things such as healing, our country, the wider world and our church.

We would love for you to be part of our gathering and if you would like any more information please speak to Neil.


The Joint Service for Christian Unity Week (18-25th January 2018) is to be held at Belhaven Church on Sunday 21st January at 11:30 am.  There will be no service at Spott that day: suitable notices to be prepared and displayed in advance.

Dunbar Churches Together would like to welcome you all to join them at the Battery down at Dunbar Harbour  for some Christmas Carols on Saturday 16th December 2017 at 3.30pm.

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.

Refreshments will be served, so please come along and enjoy the chat. Transport to and from the meeting can be provided. Call Christine Gray on 01368 863 035

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.
