Getting Dover 'Unplugged' with St. Dunstan's Church

Dover Unplugged

Dover Unplugged, St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church’s community-focused event series, launched last week with much success. Designed with the entire community in mind, Dover Unplugged provides a chance for community members to unplug and enjoy the company of friends and neighbors. The series kicked off on February 2nd with a screening of "Groundhog Day." Future events, including speakers on important issues, crafting, educational opportunities, and service projects, will be held on the first Wednesday or Friday of each month.

“In conversations within our parish and with friends outside of it, we kept hearing the need for people to have more opportunities for face-to-face interactions and time to just simply connect,” said Rev. Sean T. Leonard, rector, St. Dunstan’s. “Part of our call is to build bridges into the Dover community, to serve the people of Dover and be a resource to the town, regardless of whether people are church members or not. We are really excited to launch Dover Unplugged and welcome all to join us as we pause, unplug and put down our phones, and simply come together in community.”

Events will be held in Fellowship Hall at St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church, 18 Springdale Avenue, Dover.

Dover Unplugged events are free to all, with the opportunity for an optional donation.
