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.

It has been the tradition in Dunblane Cathedral that the tower bells are not pealed between Palm Sunday and Easter morning. However, because of this week’s events, the Moderator of the General Assembly, along with the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and the Prime Minister, has encouraged churches to ring their bells on Thursday in solidarity to with all who feel deeply about the destruction, by fire, of Notre Dame in Paris. Dunblane Cathedral Change Ringers will ring a quarter peal at 12 noon and a single bell will be tolled for seven minutes at 7pm, along with bells throughout the UK
