11:00am Sung Eucharist

The 11am Sung Eucharist is the main Cathedral service, with a sermon and choir, using the 1982 Liturgy. On the first Sunday of each month prayers for healing take place in the Lady Chapel.

Communion is celebrated at either the Nave Altar or the High Altar depending on the season. The service is led by the clergy with lay participation in reading (from the Revised Common Lectionary) and intercessions. There is always a choir during term times.


11:00am Traidcraft

Traidcraft was established in 1979 to fight poverty through trade. Perth became a Fair Trade City in June 2005. We have a Traidcraft stall in the Chapter House, which sells useful groceries and divine chocolate every Sunday after the 11 o’clock service.


4:30pm Evensong

Choral Evensong is held generally on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 4.30pm.
