We are a seaside fellowship of people from many different walks of life who are discovering life’s meaning through a transforming relationship with Jesus. As members of God’s family, we have become His disciples—learning to live like Jesus and receiving power from His Spirit—so we can joyfully love those around us and do our Father’s will on earth as it is in heaven. If you are looking for a warm and friendly church home, we invite you to:

In May, we focus on the values of encouragement and Christian unity as we learn about St. Dunchadh (Died March 24, 717). Dunchadh was born into the line of Conall Gulban. He was the son of Cenn Fáelad, and grandson of Máel Coba, of the Cenél Conaill. He became a monk at Killochuir in southeast Ulster and, from 710 until his death, ruled the abbey of Iona, Scotland. He was known for his gifts of encouragement and blessing.
While most early abbots of Iona were members of Cenél Conaill, they came from minor branches of the kindred, Dúnchad came from the ruling line, grandson of one High King of Ireland and the nephew of two others, Cellach and Conall. The Abbot of Iona was the head of Iona Abbey and the leader of the monastic community of Iona, as well as the overlord of scores of monasteries in both Scotland and Ireland, including Durrow, Kells and, for a time, Lindisfarne. It was one of the most prestigious clerical positions in Dark Age Europe, and was visited by kings and bishops of the Picts, Franks and English. During Dunchadh’s abbacy, Saint Egbert finally convinced the Celtic monks of Iona to adopt the Roman customs — tonsure, date of Easter, Benedictine Rule.
This May, we practice the ancient art of encouragement and blessing – find out how, at Celtic Evensong.

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:16-17)
