Scottish Episcopal Church St John the Baptist Sharing Christ's love in Perth
Bishop Ian preaching on Sunday 18th April

We are pleased to inform you that Bishop Ian will be preaching as he joins with us for worship in St John's this coming Sunday morning.  If you wish to attend the service in person please do remember to let Judy Norwell know in good time to ensure you have an allocated space, her contact details are on the main page of the website.

Update on recent developments regarding worship

There is now good news: based on the latest rules from the House of Bishops and the Scottish government, the vestry has finally been able to meet and has agreed that, barring advice to the contrary from the above two sources, St John’s will open on 4th April Easter Day at 10.30 for a Eucharistic service with restricted numbers.

Sadly as yet we remain unable to simply arrive at our churches without booking. Please take note of the guidance on the main page of the web site regarding attendance at services in particular for Easter Sunday as places will be allocated.  As Covid regulations will still apply, mask wearing, sanitizing, social distancing and immediate departure after services will have to continue.

Current worship guidelines and YouTube link for Sunday 14th March worship video.

As yet we are not permitted to open for congregational worship but the new updated guidance will be issued shortly once there has been clarification from the Scottish Government and the the Scottish Episcopal Church.  The guidance will likely be similar to the restrictions we experienced at the end of 2020.

During the current restrictions we are continuing with a pre-recorded video on Sunday mornings.  During Holy week plans are in place for additional pre-recorded services on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday as well as a Palm Sunday morning service at our regular Sunday video time. The link to the video available on YouTube for Sunday 14th March will be available here shortly before 10.30 am:  https://youtu.be/IoTb16u_kcU.
