Latest news from the churches in Perth


PACT is an ecumenical body with representatives from over 20 churches and Christian communities from Perth and the surrounding area. Probably our most high profile activities are those where we worship together, with our Annual Christmas Carol Service, Good Friday Walk of Witness in the City Centre and our Easter Dawn Service at Quarrymill.

We also run ecumenical Bible studies during Lent. PACT also responds to identified needs within the community. Organisations like Churches Action for the Homeless and Starter Packs began from the churches' initiatives. We take a keen interest in the Perth and Kinross Foodbank, and Street Pastors.

We encourage members of our churches to support all of these organisations and more with their time and skills. We believe that, as representatives of the various Christian denominations in Perth, what unites us is more important than what divides us, and we rejoice in the shared witness we can make to our local community.

Our current membership includes the Baptist Church, Methodist Church, Congregational Church, Church of Scotland, Episcopal Church, Roman Catholic Church, community churches, the Salvation Army and three retreat houses.

Each church is presented by their minister, priest or worship leader plus two lay representatives. We have business meetings approximately five times a year, including our AGM in early summer, and we meet for worship and other shared activities during the Christian year.

We support various initiatives within the community including:

  • CATH (Churches Action for the Homeless) who work with homeless people;
  • Starter Packs who provide essentials needed to set up home;
  • Street Pastors who give a helping hand to anyone who needs it out in our city on weekend nights;
  • Perth Foodbank

God of light, place a candle in our hearts, so we may walk as children of the Light,
treading gently on the paths of peace and ever ready
to welcome the signs of new life. Amen.
