How to find us
The church is located on Princes Street, by the junction of Canal Street, and is marked on the map below at the top of the pink circle. Please note 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.
For a more detailed street map showing street names and one way system by Google but note that the Google map shows the church further south than it really is. The OS map here is accurate.
