Welcome to the Presbytery of Perth
Welcome to the website of the Presbytery of Perth. The Presbytery was formed on January 1st 2023 and is made up of the geographical areas covered by the former Presbyteries of Angus, Perth, Dundee, Dunkeld & Meigle and Stirling. It is a diverse Presbytery, made up of three of Scotland’s cities, a large number of towns and villages, along with many rural congregations.
The Presbytery meets for ordinary business four times per year in Hybrid format (in person and via Zoom) at St Matthew’s Parish Church in Perth and it also meets at other times (e.g. for conferences, ordinations and inductions of ministers etc.) as determined by the Presbytery.
The Presbytery of Perth is part of the Church of Scotland and comprises around 150 congregations. Each congregation is represented by ministers, deacons and elders who take part in local decision making. We meet to worship, learn, share and make administrative decisions. Our meetings are open to the public apart from occasional private items. In between meetings a variety of committees deal with the ongoing business of the Presbytery. Our meetings are chaired by a ‘Moderator’ who is elected each year.
Whether you are looking for information about your local church, want to find out about events taking place within the Presbytery, or you are a member of Presbytery seeking resources, this site should be a useful source of information.
