Our building was designed by one of Glasgow’s most famous architects, Alexander ’Greek’ Thomson (1817-1875), and stands as the only intact survivor of three churches designed by Thomson in our city.
Thomson was not only an eminent architect but also a Christian who put his talents to use to design one of the most extraordinary buildings in Glasgow. His faith played a major role in his career and this church building is designed with an intentional focus on its purpose as a place of worship. Within the main sanctuary, where our Sunday services take place, the pulpit (from where the minister speaks) is centrally placed in front of the congregation, reflecting the importance of the Bible and preaching.
In the 1960s the building was purchased by Glasgow Corporation and is now owned by Glasgow City Council and preserved as an “A” listed property. Our congregation have been renting this building as a congregation since 1971, and it has proved an ideal location for us to gather together in the heart of the city.
If you would like to arrange a tour of the building, please get in touch with our church office.
