Rock Community Church

Rock Community Church

Rock Community Church is a vibrant church community serving Dumbarton and surrounding areas. 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, we have created 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.

Learn and Grow Business Partners

Businesses and groups, large and small provide fantastic support to Learn and Grow. This goes from the recycling of wood and plant pots, which would otherwise be destined for a landfill site, to plants, seeds and tools in addition to advice and guidance. We continue to be incredibly grateful for the support we receive. Going forward, our business partners may even help to build a growing space or plant a community woodland!
