Telephone & Email disruption at Riverside

We’re having Email/Telephone problems!

Work at the site beside our church at Dumbarton Harbour Planning Application, Caskie Limited demolishing the old Elephant & Castle pub has unfortunately severed the telephone line to the Church and office, affecting calls, internet and emails. Please bear with us while BT Openreach, Caskie Limited and Culross hopefully come up with a resolution that won’t be affected by the ongoing demolition & construction.
If you have left a message over the last week or so and have not heard back please do try again!

New Signs!

Sign At Dumbarton Riverside

Only installed yesterday, we now have bright and attractive professionally designed signs and noticeboards facing Church Street, Castle Street and the High Street, helping to keep everyone up to date on the many activities and events going on at the Church and in the halls. Sign At Dumbarton Riverside

New indoor signs to match have also been installed to help people find their way around our Church and halls complex.
Many thanks to our member Simon for helping to organise and to Davina and her colleagues at West Dunbartonshire Council (see West Dunbartonshire Council Information and Updates) for their help in getting generous financial assistance from the Common Good Fund.

Halls At Dumbarton RiversideWith the new Council offices under construction, the start of the development at the harbour site next door and plans for new shops along Castle Street, the whole area around our Church is under development, and will hopefully help to re-vitalise Dumbarton Town centre
