Dunblane Cathedral is part of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland. A Welcome Area is set close to the Main (South) Door where visitors may make themselves known or seek assistance. Tea and Coffee are usually served in the Cathedral hall after the Service, to which visitors are especially welcome.
If you plan to visit Dunblane Cathedral at other times than services, look here for more details, including opening hours. We are a busy church and there are a lot of activities in the Cathedral and its halls. Full details of all public events within Dunblane Cathedral and wider afield are available HERE.
The music lists for our services are available from the Choir page or by clicking HERE.
Can you help?
It takes a lot of volunteers to provide all the services available within the Cathedral. If you are able and willing, your energy and time would be very helpful to various areas of the Cathedral. At the start of this New Year, the following groups are all urgently looking for helpers, and can be contacted with the details below:
Community Lunch Club – We are hoping to restart the Dunblane Community Lunch Club and are looking for helpers – kitchen staff and especially drivers. If you can help with either of these roles, please click HERE to fill in the form and let us know.
Live Streaming – We have an active Live Streaming team who support our thriving online congregation with our weekly service and occasionally other services. We would like to have a few more hands, of all ages, to help out on audio and/or video at these services. If you are interested, please come along and speak to any of the team after the service, or contact us by clicking HERE. Technical knowledge is NOT a pre-requisite, so please get in touch if interested.
The Well - With the opening of 'The Well' providing teas and coffees in the morning during the week again, we are looking for volunteers to assist, either regularly or just occasionally. Additionally, we are looking for an overall volunteer coordinator to manage the rota for the volunteers. If you are willing to help in any way with this venture, please contact Alison Wright or contact the Cathedral by clicking HERE.
On-Line Services and Cathedral Kids News
It is hard to watch each news bulletin on the human tragedy that is unfolding in Ukraine at present, and it is easy to feel helpless in the face of the grief, fear and danger faced by the Ukrainian people remaining in their homeland as it comes under attack from Russian armed forces, and the sorrow, exhaustion and uncertainty of those who have fled their homeland without knowing where they will go.
Our midweek service is held in the Cathedral Halls each Wednesday at 11.00am, where we will pray for our world and our community, and continue praying for peace in Ukraine.
We are also encouraging people to give financial support the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Working with other major aid agencies, including Christian Aid and the British Red Cross, DEC will be helping to provide, food, water, shelter and medical assistance to the people of Ukraine. Please click HERE to donate.

Dunblane's Leighton Library
Robert Leighton is commemorated within Dunblane Cathedral as one of the key figures on the pulpit telling the story of the history of Dunblane Cathedral, and also the magnificent carved reredos of the Leighton Screen filling the wall behind the Communion Table, depicting the seven corporal acts of mercy. You can find out more in this post about the restoration of Dunblane's historic Leighton Library which was the bequest to Dunblane of Robert Leighton - click HERE to view the videos.
'Hymne til Ærø' CD
To commemorate 30 years of the Flentrop organ in Dunblane Cathedral, we are delighted to offer a meticulously selected and beautiful CD of Danish works on this magnificent instrument.
"Hymne til Ærø" takes its title from a work of the same name composed by Kevin Duggan, Dunblane Cathedral's Director of Music, after his time living on the Danish island of Ærø. The piece is one of two world-premiere recordings of his music featured on this release.
For local residents in Dunblane and Doune, there is an option to purchase CDs for £10 and have them delivered by hand for free, available HERE
For addresses further away, there is an option to have the CDs sent by post for £12 including post and packing by clicking HERE
