Our Mission

As part of the Scottish Episcopal Church, Perth Cathedral St Ninian’s serves as the focal point of the diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane. We strive to inspire our congregation, the local community and the wider world in the knowledge and love of God. We aim to engage all generations in the richness of the Christian faith and the Passion of Christ through prayer, worship and music. We invite and welcome everyone to enjoy the beauty of the building and experience a journey of spiritual learning through the worship of God.


Provost’s Welcome

Welcome to Perth Cathedral, dedicated to God in the name of Saint Ninian, acknowledged as Scotland’s first saint. The building, one of William Butterfield’s early designs, is “A” listed, signifying that it is of national or international importance.

The beauty and magnificence of the architecture is equally matched by the warmth of welcome found among the worshipping community here. We are a mission-shaped church, seeking to connect in many different ways with the community around us and beyond, welcoming visitors and groups from all over the world.

We are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, totally inclusive and ecumenical in our outlook and practice. As a worshipping community we welcome all who wish to share in our daily services and public prayer, in the hope that we can all recognise the transforming presence of God in Jesus Christ.

The Very Reverend Hunter Farquharson, Provost of Perth Cathedral
