Church Overview

Built 1863 to a design by John Honeyman. The spire of 218 feet, one of the slimmest in Europe, is a powerful landmark on Great Western Road. Box pews. Beautiful stained glass by Alfred and Gordon Webster, and war memorial frieze by Evelyn Beale. Pipe organ 1911, Norman & Beard, said to have the finest tuba rank in Glasgow with some wonderful flutes. Four Acres Charitable Trust FACT is seeking funding for the restoration of this important church. Services are held in the church hall. The church sanctuary is available for use, too, thanks to a recent grant which allowed the Four Acres Charitable Trust to install a protective crash net. The church hall and rooms are extensively used by community groups, clubs, societies and individuals.


Sunday 11.00 am in the church hall.
