The Church at the
Centre of Perth

Standing on sacred ground at the very centre of the ancient Royal Burgh of Perth, St. John’s Kirk has borne Christian witness to Scotland’s turbulent past for 800 years. Some of the most important events in history of the Church in Scotland took place within its walls.
