St John the Baptist Sharing Christ's love in Perth
Welcome to St John’s

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.

We are no longer required to wear face coverings during worship.  It does remain a recommendation and those in church may make a choice as to what is the best option for themselves or in relation to other people.

The YouTube links for the 10.30am service on Sunday 7th August should be available below shortly before worship commences:

The direct link to our YouTube channel can be accessed here: St John's Episcopal Church, Perth

When it is available please click the link here to enable access to the 10.30am Sunday morning Pew Sheet:

The links on this page may not work on mobile phones or tablets but the worship links can currently be accessed through the video section of the website by clicking the small bars at the top of the web page.  The links to Sunday worship will all remain in the video section which is easily accessed at the top of the page.  The posts section also now appears to be updating appropriately thus the links should also be available there although there is currently a problem with the news section updating.

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:

Our Church of St. John the Baptist exists

  • 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.
