Welcome

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.

This time last year Nerys was dreaming of holding the first ever Pet Service at St Mary's this coming Sunday, the feast of St Francis. It is not to be but we will be remembering Francis and his love of the natural world in our Night Service at 8 p.m. with readings, prayers and music. Contact Sue on services@stmarysdunblane.org if you would like to come. Everyone is welcome. ... See MoreSee Less

This was Harvest Thanksgiving at St Mary's twelve months ago. This year the service will be different in many ways but some things will be the same as ever: the church will be just as beautifully decorated, there will be the same opportunity to give to those in need and the welcome will be as warm as ever. If you'd like to come for a short service at 10.30 a.m. this Sunday contact Sue on services@stmarysdunblane.org If you would like to contribute some flowers or produce or find out how to support our charities, Start-up Stirling and Christian Aid, have a read of Nerys' letter by clicking on the link:
