COVID-19 and Mental Health

Blythswood shoebox Appeal

This year things are a little different with the donating to the Bythswood Shoebox Appeal. Due to the current pandemic, Blythswood are encouraging people to give monetary gift as this will allow us to make up bags and boxes in a very controlled environment. A Virgin money giving page has been created to allow us to do this online, at

We do however understand that many enjoy filling a shoe box and we will be happy to receive these, however we will need all shoe box donations to be brought to the cathedral by 16th November. 


Doors Open Day

The clergy and congregation of St Ninian's Cathedral profoundly regret that owing to the recent increse in coronavirus cases and the latest COVID 19 regulations, we are now unable to open the building safely to the public for Doors Open Day this year. However, our regular worship will continue and the cathedral will remain open to visitors for private prayer Monday - Friday 10am-2pm.
