Provost's Welcome

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.
