About the Church of Scotland in Dumbarton

The three congregations within the town of Dumbarton (St Andrews, Riverside and The West Kirk) are now linked with a view to some form of union at a future date. This triple linkage was completed on 17th January 2018 at a Presbytery service of linkage and induction.


Services start at 11:15 on Sunday mornings alternating between Dumbarton Riverside and The West Kirk, streamed to St Andrews, and at 10am once a month “live” at St Andrews. Masks are no longer mandatory. Services are streamed & recorded via YouTube – you can watch live or catch up later. Follow our regular Sunday service using the links below:
