Discovery Church was birthed when a few folks dared to step out and leave the shore with a 'yes' in response to the call of God to pioneer something fresh, creative and life-giving in Dunbar. If we, as the church, really are living stones as Peter suggests, then our natural approach is to invest in and build community; to encourage people; to love and bless them; and to invite them into a bigger narrative, one that is truly epic.
Discovery Church is part of the Elim Pentecostal Church, a growing movement of over 550 churches in the UK, but also with churches and missions in over 40 nations.
As a statement of faith, our beliefs align with that of the denomination. Details can be found at www.elim.org.uk
Dunbar is a small fishing/agricultural town, with a wee bit of surf, situated on the North Sea coast in East Lothian, Scotland. The area has a rich heritage and is built upon a history of battles, conquests and spiritual pilgrimages, all of which are synonymous with the area, whether on sea or on land.
"Fortunately, around my native town of Dunbar by the stormy North Sea, there was no lack of wildness." -
We are fellowship who gather in unity and scatter with purpose and hope; who love deeply, walk humbly and dare greatly; who seek to discover sustainable rhythms in our lives as we explore the truths of the Bible and how it applies to our everyday situations; a fellowship who find our true identity through walking with Jesus; and who aim to always bring out the best in each other, encouraging each other towards wholeness.
