About this event

Who is the Gathering for?Anyone who would like to come! It is offered as an opportunity for those around Scotland who have Methodist connections to come together for a face-to-face weekend, after a few years on screens! Throughout the weekend we will ask the question, ‘What does it mean to be Methodist in Scotland?’ – there are lots of answers to that!

What will happen?There will be a varied programme of activities and worship with elements for all ages. A full programme will be published soon. Everyone will be free to dip in and out of the events as best suits them. For Synod members, the Autumn Synod will take place between 11am and 1pm - with other activities available then for non-Synod members. At times there will be separate places and activities for children and for teenagers, at other times we will be integrated all together, but in a way which enables everyone to be seen and heard.

Where and when does it all take place?The main events will be in the Salutation Hotel in Perth, with additional activities taking place in Perth Methodist Church. The Gathering will open with a Ceilidh at 7pm on Friday and finish after worship around 1pm on Sunday.

Where do I stay?You are invited to arrange your own accommodation – plenty is available in Perth ranging from campsites to hotels. A list of some possible suggested accommodation is available here.

What about food and drink?Please make your own arrangements for meals during the Gathering. The hotel has a dining room and bar. Perth Methodist Church will be open for folk to take their own packed lunches to eat there on Saturday.

What does it cost?

The District is making no charge for the weekend but is investing in this event as a significant part of our life as Methodists in Scotland. There will be opportunities to make a donation if you so wish.
