Dumfries Northwest Church is a very active church which is committed to the community it serves.

The main Sunday service is at 11:00.

This website no longer provides direct links to sermon and workshop presentation podcasts and recordings but the audio of most of the sermons from 2011 to 2018 is available here and you can download the Sunday Evening Workshop presentations which were recorded, here.

The Mission Statement was put together over a two and a half year period of discussion and debate which began in 2007 about what the kingdom of God demands of a church in our area and time.

In obedience to Christ, we are committed to offering a welcome and spiritual home to everyone regardless of race, social or marital status, gender or sexual orientation.

The Mission Statement reflects the radical inclusiveness of Jesus’ teaching.

There is more to Dumfries Northwest than the Mission Statement suggests.

We would, for instance, have included this, had Church of Scotland legislation permitted us to do so at the time. This is also our position. As soon as we are permitted to do so, we will offer same-sex marriage services.

The Kirk Session is unequivocal in its belief that we should offer services of blessing to those who wish to celebrate their relationship, regardless of sexuality.

Those seeking to join this congregation, to be baptised, to have their children baptised, to be married or to have a Civil Partnership or marriage (same-sex or opposite-sex) blessed, should, in the first instance, contact the minister through the Church Office.

Everything Dumfries Northwest is stems from this statement in a parable Jesus told. If you want to understand who we are so that you can be part of this church at any level, this is the ‘why’ of this congregation. We keep coming back to this one set of statements. This is our motivation. This is our aspiration. This is our reason for being.

I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.
(Matthew 25: 35,36)

We’d love to have you worship with us. You can find us on Lochside Road. Most people would tell you that we are the church just along from McDonald’s. Everyone in Dumfries knows where McDonald’s is so if you are looking for us, ask to be directed there!
