This page will contain useful information as we get it and also links to Rev. Brennan's "e-worship services" which are our way of keeping God's Church alive during the pandemic.


We have received a number of requests from people who want to support the work of the Church financially but don't know how with the current restrictions. If you are in this position, there are various options:

  1. Regular Giving:
  2. Monthly Standing Order to the Church bank account, which keeps you in control through your instructions to your bank.
  3. Envelopes (usually weekly) - normally put in offering plates during services - but during lockdown the Clerk to the Board, Bob McMillan, has offered to be a collection point or will arrange for collection from your home if requested.
  4. One-off Giving:
  5. Online through a secure facility set up and managed by the Church of Scotland at: - click on 'Donate to a congregation' and then enter Dundonald (Ayr) followed by your details as prompted. (Note, this could also be used for regular giving but generally 1.a) above is the preferred option.)
  6. By cheque made out to 'Dundonald Church of Scotland' - usually it is simplest to post it but collection can be arranged if preferred.
  7. Gift Aid:  For any of the above, if you are a tax payer it is possible for the Church to recover tax, at no extra cost to you, through a gift aid declaration.

If you would like to use one of these options or would like more details, please contact the Clerkto the Board, Bob McMillan 01563 850702 or the Treasurer, Sheila Tannock. 01563 850427

With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we are still closed and unable to see any patients until the Chief Dental Officer advises us otherwise.
There are a lot of conditions that don’t require urgent attention. Here’s a list of common problems we see and what you can do to help.

Regular painkillers if you need them. Good oral hygiene with a fluoride toothpaste and reducing your intake of sugary foods will help ensure any decay won’t get worse

Bleeding after extractions
Apply pressure to the socket. Bite on a clean handkerchief or cloth – not tissue paper, for 30 minutes. If this doesn’t work call the practice.
Pink saliva and a little bit of oozing from the socket is normal. Avoid hot drinks and alcohol. Don’t rinse your mouth for 24 hours.

Bleeding gums
These will improve if can clean your teeth and gums effectively. Brush for 2 minutes especially at the gum line and don’t forget to clean between the teeth with floss or interdental brushes. Corosdyl mouthwash may help but prolonged use can cause staining.

Dentures rubbing or loose
Use of a denture adhesive, like Fixodent or Polygrip may help. Seabond denture pads may make the denture more comfortable and stable. If there is a sharp edge an emery board can be used to smooth down.

Lost crown or veneer
Toofypegs can be used to restick lost crowns or veneers at home. Good oral hygiene will help stop the tooth becoming decayed

Bonjela on the area that is painful before meals in particular.
Take painkillers if necessary
Rinse with saltwater to prevent infection
Use difflam mouthwash which you can get from the pharmacist.

Sensitive teeth
Teeth can be sensitive to hot and cold foods/drinks due to receding gums, large fillings or decay. Toothpaste for sensitive teeth can help apply to the teeth and leave overnight after brushing. Avoid sugary and acidic foods and drinks which may make things worse.

Lost filling/broken tooth
Emergency dental kits can be bought at the pharmacists to patch up tooth at home and are also available on Amazon. Take painkillers if required. Again good oral hygiene and low sugar intake will help.

Adults (Over 16)
Paracetamol 1g (2x 500mg) 4 times daily
Child doses – follow the advice on the pack. If you are unsure what you can take, check with your pharmacist

If you have a dental emergency which you cannot manage alone, please give us a call on 01292 313 447 between 9-5, Monday to Friday or NHS24 on 111 at weekend and evenings.
