Worship, music and events in an awe-inspiring cathedral

Perth Cathedral, St Ninian's is a beautiful church building in Perth, Scotland. As part of the Scottish Episcopal Church there are services of worship every Sunday, featuring music from the cathedral choir and organist. Throughout the week groups meet to serve the local community. The inspiring building is also a popular venue for concerts and other events.


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 world wide 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
