Iconostasis and sanctuary

Worship

The church is a converted single-storey cottage. It is furnished in traditional style, with no pews (though with seats around the edge for those who need them). We use the Old Calendar, which is 13 days behind the secular calendar. During services, only candles are used for lighting. The music is unaccompanied harmony singing, following the Russian tradition. The services are mostly in English, with occasional items in Slavonic.

Non-liturgical activities

Most years, we organise a coffee morning in Dunblane, where members of the community organise stalls such as: home baking, bric-a-brac, genuine borshch soup, second-hand books, crafts and gifts, and icons.

Church dedication

The church is dedicated to St Nicholas of Myra (270-342), and also honours St Blane, the sixth-century Celtic saint who founded a monastery where Dunblane Cathedral now lies.
