Welcome to our website we hope you find it a helpful resource in discovering more about St John’s as a place of worship and its community. As with all places of worship during the current coronavirus crisis worship and meetings in our buildings have ceased until further notice.
We have set up a YouTube account to enable everyone with an internet connection to share in the short Sunday worship videos created by St John’s clergy and technically astute lay members. This is the link for the service on Sunday 24th May which will be live from 10.30am: https://youtu.be/dFYWrNKQ7GM
The weekly link to worship will be posted here initially and then will be found in the new video section which is easily accessed at the top of the page. The link will also be found in the recent posts in the news section and to the right hand side of this page.
The videos will also continue to be available on our Facebook page directly or through the YouTube link.
Many may continue to appreciate the Sunday service being streamed by the Province. This is the link to give access to the Provincial worship page: http://www.scotland.anglican.org/broadcast-sunday-worship
Our Church of St. John the Baptist exists
- to worship God as understood in the person, life, death and resurrection of Jesus;
- to care for the people of Perth and its environs;
- and to engage with the wider world in a positive, caring and thoughtful way.

We are an inclusive church and work without making judgments and in complete confidence, with people of all faiths, cultures, races, genders and sexual orientations. And we welcome the opportunity of sharing with you in your journey of faith. We would be delighted to help with Baptisms and Marriages, and we are also available to help support through Funerals and bereavement.
We are a Scottish Episcopal Church in the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane, part of the world-wide Anglican Communion. Seven dioceses cover the whole of Scotland bearing witness to faith today and tracing a history back to the earliest known Christians in Scotland. We are a part of the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld & Dunblane.

There is a Scottish Episcopal Church presence in communities across Scotland. Members of the church engage in roles of active Christian leadership on peace, justice and human rights issues as well as having pastoral and educational roles. The church works closely with other Christian denominations and faith communities in Scotland in responding to the needs and concerns of all people.
