Welcome

Mini_StMarys2

All around Scotland, wherever you see a Scottish Episcopal Church, you will find this sign of our hope and promise; “You are welcome.” Whoever you are, where ever you come from, there is a place for you here.

We are a diverse congregation, committed to growing in faith in Jesus and living for God, making a positive difference in our local community and the wider world.

Some of our members have grown up in the Church and in Dunblane while others have visited and stayed with us because they have felt welcome and found a spiritual home.

We value people of all ages and backgrounds, and we seek to shape our events and services so that everyone can join in the social and worship life of our church. This is a creative process which encourages us to find new ways to express diversity in community: drawing people together, without pretending that everyone is the same.

Rev Nerys Brown, Rector of St Mary’s Dunblane

Our main service each Sunday morning is at 10:30am followed by a time for coffee and fellowship in the hall. During this service there is provision for children of all ages.

We have a reflective, traditional communion service at 8:30am every Sunday, and a Celtic style communion at 10:30am on the second Thursday of every month.

At 3:15pm on the first Tuesday of every month we have Messy Church in the hall, a time to explore faith together with fun hands-on activities for all ages, finishing with a shared meal.

Our church building is open for visitors and for prayer each day from morning ’til night-fall.

There is a loop system in the church for those with hearing aids, and wheelchair access to both the church and the hall.

Nerys has badges to share.Today is another #ThursdaysinBlack. Some wonder, “Why Black?” Often “black” has been used with negative racial connotations, or as a sign of mourning. In this campaign, ‘Black’ is used as a colour of resistance and resilience. Like the campaign itself, It comes from historical movements for justice, such as “Women in Black” in Israel and Palestine, who protest war and violence, and the Black Sash movement in South Africa that protested against apartheid. #ThursdaysinBlack resists attitudes and practices that permit rape and violence. That is the power of “Black”. More about the campaign at www.oikoumene.org/thursdays-in-black ... See MoreSee Less

We continue to pray for the ministry of the Stirling Street Pastors.All of our Street Pastors in Stirling are supported by Prayer Partners who are friends, family or members of their churches. Prayer Partners commit to pray for our teams when they go out on patrol and also attend our prayer nights and are invited to our annual dinner.

Last Friday night, we were delighted to have one of our Prayer Partners join the team as an observer. Not only did she get a real feel of what our teams do, she also had a kebab for the first time in her life!
