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 first Thursday of every month.

At 3:15pm on the second 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.

In our materials for worship today, Revd Moira Jamieson writes about the reassuring unconditional love of God which reminds her of the well-known portrait by Rembrandt of the Prodigal Son. She says:

'It’s an amazing revealing portrait of a father’s love for his wayward son, and each time I see the father’s hand on his son’s shoulder, especially that delicate almost female right hand, it reminds me that God’s love for us is unconditional, and that he will always welcome us with open arms. Of course, this amazing work of art has much more to reveal than this, but for today’s reflection, I think it speaks of love and hope in the here and now. I wonder if you have ever felt that gentle hand of the Father on your shoulder. Some years ago, at a time of great sadness when I was alone in church praying and lighting a candle, I felt a touch on my shoulder and when I turned around there was no one there. I knew there and then that it was a touch from God, a reassuring touch, telling me that I was not alone ...
