Large and handsome Italianate church erroneously ascribed by the Parish Centenary History to Goldie and Child of London, 1841-2. The similarity of the building to that of Saint Margaret's Airdrie (1836) is currently being investigated as a possible answer to the question of the original architects/builders. The Firm Goldie and Childe did make major changes and renovated the church in 1877 in anticipation of the Restoration of the Hierarchy in Scotland in 1878. The classical façade has a projecting porch and a large pediment, topped by a slender oblong belfry. A sculptured pair of winged figures holding a gilded cross adorn the pediment. The interior is arcaded and galleried with three altars. Queen Street low level trains heading East travel through Bellgrove Station where you should alight and climb the stairs, turn left and continue across Gallowgate to the church which is on the left (about two minutes walk)
