We have several worship groups who assist in leading our services. If you have a musical gift as a singer and/or instrumentalist and would be interested in serving the church through music then please speak to one of the worship leaders or contact the church office.
The sound team are responsible for operating the sound system in DBCC but with a particular focus on the main auditorium. We offer full training for all ages and opportunities to learn and grow in your skills. Do you have a love of technology and an ear for what sounds good? Could you use these skills to serve the church? Contact us if you are interested in joining the team.
The AV team are responsible for the video projection, recording and on-line broadcasting of the services each week. Are you adept at using computers, have a flair for video production or editing and keen to be involved in on-line broadcasting? Do you wish to use these gifts in the service of the Church?

On the first Sunday of each month a team of six of us have an informal service in the Allanbank Care home with hymn singing, prayer and a short message from scripture. The service commences at 3:30pm till 4pm, followed by a time to talk with the residents, with tea provided, for about half an hour. Please get in touch with Willie Taylor if you would like to help out.
On the third Sunday afternoon of each month since the autumn of 2015 members of DBC have been leading a worship service in the lounge of the McCarthy-Stone Granary complex. We meet with around twenty residents to read God’s word, sing, pray and to hear a ‘wee sermon’ on subjects ranging from ‘Habakkuk in the Rockies’ to ‘Another day at the Office for Jesus’. Meeting with these delightful mature people to share God’s word and our faith has been an immense privilege and blessing for us from DBC, and many friendships have been forged and links with DBC established these past years. We ask for prayer that this witness may continue and know God’s blessing. Please get in touch with Alistair Mackay if you would like to help out.
