Dumbarton: Riverside linked with The West Kirk and St Andrews

The Church of Scotland in Dumbarton

Presbytery Plans

There have been various alterations to Presbytery Plans in recent years, leading to the linkage of Dumbarton: Riverside with Dumbarton: West Kirk in 2014 and then in 2018 a triple linkage was formed comprising Dumbarton: Riverside, Dumbarton: West Kirk and Dumbarton: St Andrews.

This means we share a minister, a part time pastoral assistant and a part time development worker.  We 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.

A new Clyde Presbytery Plan is being developed.
