Our address is:
St John the Baptist Scottish Episcopal Church,
Princes Street, Perth, PH2 8LJ
Telephone: (+44) (0)1738 634999
The church is located on Princes Street, by the junction with Canal Street. Since there are two other churches in Perth dedicated to St John, it is easier to find us by asking for Princes Street than by the name of the church. There is a car park next to the church with an entrance on Canal Street.
The Threshold – church meeting centre
Our ‘Threshold centre’ is right next door to the church on Princes Street. Access is through a gate leading to the glazed walkway which connects the church and the Threshold.

There is plenty of car parking nearby: street parking in and around Princes Street, a car park immediately next to the church on Canal Street, a multi-storey car park just a couple of hundred metres to the west along Canal Street, or a long-stay car park at the north east corner of the South Inch parkland. All parking is by pay and display tickets. The South Inch car park is only 5 minutes walk to the church along Princes Street.
Perth station is served by a regular service by Scotrail and the daily East Coast Highland Chieftain from Kings Cross, York, Newcastle etc. The railway station is shown towards the west end of the map, and the church is a pleasant 10 minute walk along the north side of the South Inch parkland, and up Princes Street. On leaving the station forecourt, turn right, go under the railway bridge and carry onto to the crossroads with traffic lights, turn left into Princes Street. Alternatively it is a 3-minute taxi ride to the church, from the station taxi rank.
By Express coach
A frequent express coach service from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness calls at the Leonard Street bus station just a hundred metres north of the railway station. Services are provided by CityLink, Megabus and National Express.
It is about ten minutes walk to the church. On leaving the bus station turn left – pass the railway station on the right, follow the road around to the left, under the railway bridge and carry onto to the crossroads with traffic lights, turn left into Princes Street.
Be aware that some coaches to Perth call at Broxden coach stop on the western edge of the city, and not at Leonard Street. There is a connecting bus from Broxden to the city centre, but it is not as convenient as the bus station.
