Perth Cathedral is the mother church of the Diocese of St. Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane in the Scottish Episcopal Church. We strive to inspire our congregation, the local community and the wider world in the knowledge and love of God. We aim to engage all generations in the richness of the Christian faith through prayer, worship and music. We invite and welcome everyone to enjoy the beauty of the building and to encounter the faith of our community by joining us in worship.
Everyone is welcome to attend services at Perth Cathedral St Ninian’s. Many members of our congregation are involved in worship in a variety of ways and welcome all those who are visiting or looking to be part of the Perth Cathedral community.
Our current services are:
Sunday - Holy Communion 11.00am
Wednesday - Holy Communion 11.00am
We plan to be open every morning between 9.30am and 12.30pm, plus Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons until 3.00pm. This depends on the availability of volunteers and unfortunately there will be occasions when we cannot open. If you would like to get in touch with us, perhaps to arrange a visit in advance, please visit our Contact page.
Welcome to Perth Cathedral, dedicated to God in the name of Saint Ninian, acknowledged as Scotland’s first saint. The building, one of William Butterfield’s early designs, is “A” listed, signifying that it is of national or international importance.
The beauty and magnificence of the architecture is equally matched by the warmth of welcome found among the worshipping community here. We are a mission-shaped church, seeking to connect in many different ways with the community around us and beyond, welcoming visitors and groups from all over the world.
We are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, totally inclusive and ecumenical in our outlook and practice. As a worshipping community we welcome all who wish to share in our daily services and public prayer, in the hope that we can all recognise the transforming presence of God in Jesus Christ.
