Welcome to the website for St. James’s Episcopal Church in Dollar, Scotland

St James the Great, Dollar is part of the Scottish Episcopal Church which reaches back to the times of the Celtic saints in Scotland. St James’s is in the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane, a vibrant community of churches each with its own atmosphere, calling and gifts. If you’d like to find out more about the Scottish Episcopal Church visit www.scotland.anglican.org

When you visit St James’s you will find it is surrounded by a beautiful and peaceful garden with flowers, trees and a labyrinth. Whether you are often in Dollar or just passing through, all visitors are welcome to enjoy the garden.

The Vestry has decided that the church will now be available for private prayer or visits The Church will normally be open from 9.00am until 5.00pm every day except for cleaning or when a service is being prepared. The church may be closed for operational or safety reasons on other occasions. If you wish to access the church and find it closed, please call the Rector on 742494 or call at the Rectory next door to the church.

Please show respect for other users of the building by following the simple Covid-safety protocols such as hand sanitising, wearing a face covering if needed and keeping a sensible distance from other people.

If you would like to simply come and enjoy the peaceful space we offer outside, you are welcome to do. We encourage this as God can be at least as close to you outside in the beauty of nature as inside.

Whether you are an individual, a couple or a family on life’s journey, you are most welcome at St James’s. Browse our website for more details or just drop by. We look forward to meeting you.
