Presbytery of Dumbarton Plan
The presbytery’s plan has been approved and adopted by both congregations, which means we are now a linked charged.
This means we share a minister and a development worker, join together for special services at Christmas, Remembrance Day and through the summer holidays, as well as working together on various projects, while maintaining our distinct identities as separate congregations with our own sanctuaries and other buildings across Dumbarton.
Revd Ian Johnson
The Presbytery of Dumbarton held a service of induction at Riverside Church on Thursday 27th February 2014 at 7pm. A large congregation from Dumbarton: Riverside, Dumbarton: The West Kirk, Greenock Lyle Kirk, friends and family turned up to welcome Ian Johnson.
The Service of Linkage between Dumbarton: Riverside and Dumbarton: The West Kirk, and Ian Johnson’s Introduction as Minister at The West Kirk, took place on Tuesday 26th August 2014 in The West Kirk.
Marie Clare Dungavell
Marie Clare joined us in Summer 2015 as the new Development Worker for both congregations, focusing on youth engagement.
We produced parish profiles to provide more detailed information about the town of Dumbarton and both congregations.
