Church Overview

T L Watson’s Roman Classical church with a mighty Corinthian columned portico dates from 1884 and is situated opposite Glasgow University’s main Gilmorehill buildings. The Renaissance style interior has fine plaster ceilings and the church uses a pipe organ made by Forster & Andrews. The congregation of Wellington Church is a welcoming, go-ahead group of people to whom worship, hospitality, outreach, inclusiveness and acceptance of diversity are very important. Social and environmental justice are key elements of its ethos. It shows its commitment in many ways eg through the Crypt Cafe which is open 10.30 to 1.45 Monday to Friday during University teaching terms; in being an Eco-Congregation; in providing a Breathing Place garden; in hosting an International Welcome Club particularly aimed at students; and in devoting time and resources to promoting justice and peace.


Sunday 11.00am and 7.00pm. The evening services are shared with Hillhead Baptist Church and Lansdowne Parish Church.
