Diocesan Synod

On Saturday 5th March the diocese will bring together clergy and lay readers online from across central Scotland.

The Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane is one of the seven dioceses of the Scottish Episcopal Church.

It covers Fife, Perth and Kinross, Clackmannanshire and eastern and central Stirling, with St Ninian’s Cathedral, Perth, at its centre. View our map of churches here

At the heart of the diocese is its movement for mission and growth, which moves us ever closer to our diocesan vision:

‘Our diocese comprises a thriving group of hopeful, caring and committed congregations whose shared life, worship and effective engagement with people and issues in their communities attracts growing numbers of people from diverse backgrounds to share the values and work of our church.’


Zoom Meeting Room will be open for voting members from 9am for registration, with YouTube acting as a public gallery. For updates, news, agenda and links to the live stream head to the diocesan web page.

Eucharist will be at 9.30 am followed by Synod business.
