Iconic landmark church in Perth city centre towering over the beautiful river Tay. Fabulous wedding, conference, concert and exhibition venue as well as home to a thriving congregation and community resource for many voluntary groups. There is stunning stained glass, interesting ecclesiastical history and features and a genuinely warm, inclusive welcome to people of all faiths and none.
Iconic landmark church in Perth city centre towering over the beautiful river Tay. Fabulous wedding, conference and exhibition venue as well as a thriving congregation and community resource for many voluntary groups.
St. Matthew’s is home to four WW1 Black Watch colours and five war memorials from other churches now no longer in use. There is stunning stained glass, interesting ecclesiastical history and features and a genuinely warm, inclusive welcome to people of all faiths and none.
St. Matthew's now has zoom sunday.
St. Matthew's Sunday Service on the Church ZOOM is at 11am every Sunday that we are in lockdown.
How it works:
It is the same as sitting in church except you are at home. The Ministers, Rev. Anne Brennan / Rev. Barbara Quigley, will conduct worship, Michael will play the hymns and a selection of his music to suit everyone. You are "allowed" to sing to your hearts content. You will hear the music but no one, other than those in your own household, will hear the singing! We will all see each other singing and enjoying worship. There will also be a PowerPoint showing the words of the hymns.
