Meeting for Worship:  Sundays at 10:30 a.m. Children Welcome.

Meeting for Worship takes place each Sunday in the Braeport Centre in Dunblane: see below. Since the COVID-19 restrictions, we have been using Zoom for blended meetings each Sunday at 10:20 for 10:30. On the first Sunday of the month the meeting at the Braeport and on Zoom are held in parallel (not blended). If you wish to join our Meeting for Worship by Zoom for the first time, please contact the clerk at dunblanequakers [at] googlemail.com for instructions.

To ensure we are prepared for your children and young people, please contact us in advance. In the past we have had an active Children and Young People's (CYP) meeting. At the moment we are a meeting in readiness to welcome children and young people whenever the need arises. To this end a number of age-appropriate activity packs are being developed, such that we are prepared for CYP should they attend. We have a core of children’s helpers who are PVG checked. 

Please see Google map link for directions to the Braeport Centre. There is ample parking behind the centre. The entrance is also to the rear of the building. The Braeport Centre is a 15 minute walk from the train station. A welcomer will be at the door to greet you.

Dunblane is one of Scotland's ancient burghs. Situated at the northern end of the M9 motorway and on the main railway line 7 miles north of Stirling with a frequent train and bus service, this picturesque small town is well worth a visit. Dunblane was founded in 602AD by the Celtic missionary St. Blane. The Cathedral in the centre of the town dates from 1204. Its interior, which was restored in the late 19th century, is worth viewing.

There are still many 17th and 18th century buildings in Dunblane. Among these are the Leighton library (1689), the oldest private library in Scotland, dating from 1687, which contains over 4000 rare books and the Dean's House (1624), which now contains the local museum. Dunblane Museum houses a collection of artefacts, paintings, prints and photographs about the Cathedral and Dunblane, and it has one of the largest collections of Communion tokens. Both these buildings are open on weekdays (May - October).

The Allan Water flows swiftly through the town and there are attractive walks along its banks.
