Rock Community Church is a vibrant church community serving Dumbarton and surrounding area. As part of our vision we aim to be actively engaged in celebrating, supporting and loving the people within our community. As part of this, in Nov 2018 we opened a community hub serving some of the most disenfranchised areas within Dumbarton. The Phoenix is primarily designed to benefit the people of Dumbarton West, namely the residents of Castlehill, Westcliff, and Brucehill. We currently have a small team of staff and are excited to add a community activities coordinator to this.
As part of our community consultation, a number of groups and activities were identified including youth work, after school clubs for kids, intergenerational events, community meals for the elderly and isolated, arts for adults, etc. The community activities coordinator post will be integral to the delivery and development of many of these already established groups and scope to introduce new activities to our programme.
