Scottish Churches House


Scottish Churches House was founded in Dunblane in 1960 as "a place that the churches hold in common, and from which they develop their ministry and mission together."  It belongs to the nine churches of Action of Churches Together in Scotland (ACTS) which has its headquarters in the building.


As a conference centre it is modest, comfortable, formed out of six 18th century cottages and a manse dated 1830 on the east side of Dunblane Cathedral square. An extensive garden rises up the hillside behind the centre to tall trees with their parliament of rooks. There are nineteen bedrooms in the main house, as well as a modern, well equipped conference hall and a dining room which can each accommodate 80 people. There is also a pleasant common room. A further ten bedrooms and two comfortable medium sized meeting rooms are to be found in the Leighton House Annexe on the north side of the square. There are 50 beds in all, in 8 single and 21 twin bedrooms. If groups require single occupancy the number of residents is limited to 29. There are two small break-out rooms, one in each building.



The House programme includes:

* retreats of various kinds

* church, inter-church and ACTS meetings

* conferences and consultations

* music and poetry

* painting, walking and senior citizens' holidays

* workcamps and foreign volunteers.


A House programme is published annually and is available on the website or on request.


The House is also used by a variety of secular organisations for their own conferences and courses, as well as being available to individual guests for holidays and time out. Citizens Advice Scotland runs many of its training courses here and regional council services regularly use the House. Information about charges and bookings is available on the website or on request.
