In December 1982, God brought together five Christians who had the same desire to worship in a pentecostal church in Dunblane. Although living in Dunblane one couple attended church in Glasgow whilst the others fellowshipped in Stirling. As their friendship developed so the realisation that one day God would plant a pentecostal church in Dunblane grew and they would be part of it.
'Loss' and 'Birth'
In April 1983 one of the couples suffered the loss of their 8 month old daughter. Out of this tragedy Dunblane Christian Fellowship was birthed as on the following Sunday morning the small group along with their 3 children met for the first time in Argyle Grove. This first meeting consisted of praise and worship followed by a sermon preached by the current pastor of the Fellowship Duncan Strathdee. Sunday school was provided for the children. The group also met mid-week to pray for a move of God in Dunblane and the surrounding area.
For the next 2 1/2 years the group continued to meet together and it was during this time that God began to speak into the Fellowship and Dunblane.
