Established in 1988

We are a church community that meets in North Berwick but gathers people from across East Lothian in Scotland.

We are passionate about what it means to live lives based on the bible, empowered by the Holy Spirit that make a difference in our town, our region and our nation.

We love to worship and we love to spend time in God’s presence. Community is at the heart of all we do.

If you are looking for a church or a safe place to encounter God for yourself we would love to connect with you.

Our history

Our community began as a midweek small group meeting in the town in 1988 before growth led to a regular Sunday gathering meeting in North Berwick High School since 1991.

Bill and Sally Nisbet founded North Berwick Christian Fellowship and passed the leadership baton on to Neil and Jo Thompson in August 2020.

The leadership baton passes Aug 2020.


Locally we love to connect with other churches in North Berwick and surrounding area.

Our other key relationships include:

Scottish Network Churches

A fellowship of leaders and a network of churches across Scotland.

Bethany Christian Trust

Working with individuals and communities to prevent homelessness.

School of Transformation

A school of ministry.

Kingdom Legacy

A group of catalytic leaders in partnership to see the Kingdom of God released in Scotland and beyond.


We believe in living generous lives and this impacts how we use our finances. It is our pleasure to support individuals and other charities locally, nationally and internationally.

For more on our finances our annual accounts are available on request.
