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.

Today we pray for all those who are selflessly serving others.Today is Maundy Thursday when Jesus washed his disciples' feet and celebrated His last supper. Maundy comes from the Latin mandatum and means command or law - it's where we get our word "mandate" from. On Maundy Thursday Jesus gave His friends a new law: “A new command I give you: Love one another".
We pray this Maundy Thursday that God's love be felt across our communities at this anxious time. We also pray for all of those working to maintain our society, often putting the needs of others before their own safety. We say thank you to our police, refuse collectors, public officials, postal workers and those in logistics, our shop and supermarket workers, cleaners, NHS staff and volunteers, teachers, care workers, food bank workers and all those working for our safety over these weeks.
Stay safe and well this Easter weekend.
