St. Dunstan’s is a vibrant and busy community church composed of all ages and is led by the Reverend Canon John Alfred Steele. “A family of Christ, walking with our community” is our mission which we embrace by stepping out in faith, in our teachings, music, fellowship and outreach in the following ways.
We are blessed with teachers that engage our children and youth in the teachings of the Bible and the ways or living with our faith. Our young people attend Sunday school during the 10 am service. There are five classes encompassing babies and toddlers and up to teenagers.
Music is a sparkling facet of our worship at St. Dunstan’s. The “Eighth Notes” treble , the “Musical Notes” mixed voice teen choir and the mixed voice adult choir sing to serve our God, our congregation, and the wider community through the joyous gift of music. We strive to lead the congregation in sung worship each week, to provide inspiration through concerts and special events, and to help raise the hearts and voices of all in praise and thanksgiving.
