Welcome to Dunblane Cathedral

Dunblane Cathedral, built upon a Christian site first established by Saint Blane around the year 600, is one of the few surviving medieval churches in Scotland. It is home to a vibrant and welcoming Church of Scotland congregation of around 1,000 members and serves the parish of Dunblane and its surroundings. Within its ancient walls, people of all ages gather to worship and to explore the significance of the life and teaching of Christ.

Sunday Services

With the Scottish Government's decision to put Stirling onto Tier 4, regrettably Dunblane Cathedral ministers and Kirk Session have taken the decision that the Cathedral will close for Sunday morning services. There will be no services in the Cathedral on Sunday 22 November, Sunday 29 November and Sunday 6 December. We hope to be able to be back in the Cathedral, depending on the on going crisis, on Sunday 13 December, and offer bookings for that service and the subsequent Christmas services. On-line worship will continue as usual and you are welcome to join us by clicking on the "Online Cathedral Services" option below.


Daily reflections and weekly Sunday Service recordings are available in the "Online Cathedral Services" section below, under "Dunblane Cathedral - For The Community". Please scroll down to find the section.

Daily Thought for the Day reflections are available in the Thought for the Day section below, also under the "Dunblane Cathedral - For The Community". Again, please scroll down to find the section.
