There were problems with the live link today for the 10.30am service from St John’s Scottish Episcopal Church, Perth for Sunday 2nd May. We believe the issue was due to our outgoing internet connection. The link remains available and the sound is clear but as the link eventually froze the camera was turned off before the end of the service: https://youtu.be/Z4yCD9c3w9A
The live link to 10.30am worship from St John’s Scottish Episcopal Church, Perth for Sunday 25th April will be available shortly before the service is due to start. We returned the camera used last week and purchased a new one which appeared to work well during a trial and gives us slightly more viewing options. Live link: https://youtu.be/0vDstcpLSpY

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.
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.
