St John's Kirk, Perth

Although early references to the Kirk appear around 1128 the present building dates from the 15th century. Over the past eight centuries St John’s has weathered the ebb and flow of history - the Reformation, Cromwell’s Commonwealth, the Jacobite rebellions. A key event was the preaching of a fiery sermon on 'Idolatry' by John Knox, a leading Reformer, in 1559.
