Our Minister: The Rev Dr Neil Dougall
Journeying with Jesus … our identity/vision statement matches my passion. Day by day I am trying to journey with Jesus. I came into ministry because I want to help others to journey with Jesus. In my ministry that’s the outcome I long for.
Week by week I try to help people reflect on their lives in the light of the Bible, and to read their Bibles through the lens of their daily life. I believe that through the Bible God helps his people make sense of their lives, make good choices and be at peace.
Our Sunday worship needs to help us join two things – everyday life and our experience of God. Actually there is nothing to join. God is always with us, everywhere we go. But that’s not what most of us think. Acts of worship remind us that God is the ever present reality. They help us to see God in everything we do.
When I’m not working, I love riding my bike. Never as fast as I want, but I still find that it helps to keep me sane. I like reading thrillers and crime fiction. I enjoy a good movie.
I’ve been in North Berwick since 2003. I enjoy living here and all that goes with being part of the community that I try to serve as a minister.
