The Blessing of the Animals and the Kick Off Spaghetti Dinner was a huge success and enjoyed by all. Can't wait for the upcoming events. What a great place to worship while also having fun.

What a story this church has! Begun in 1886, it is older than the City of Dunedin, which was incorporated in 1899, and became a city in 1925. Along with the Celtic stories on Nov. 20th there will be a recap of the church's history in Dunedin...the ancient name for Edinborough!
