Thoughtfulness in worship and in preaching, and warmth of friendship characterise our diverse community. We are a Christian family of all ages, from a wide range of backgrounds – socially, geographically and denominationally. In that, we are simply reflecting the amazing diversity and vitality of the West End of Glasgow.






Our Minister

Rev. Catriona Gorton, M.Phil., B.A., B.Sc.(Eng).

You can visit her blog.


Because of structural difficulties, our sanctuary is currently closed, so we meet in ‘The Tryst' next door. Consequently, the congregation is being challenged to explore God's purpose for her ministry, and the possible redevelopment of the premises. Inevitably, this has led to some disruption of our activities, but it makes life exciting, as we try to work out what it means to be a witnessing and serving Christian community in the heart of Glasgow's West End in the 21st century.




Summer 2015


Our services are normally held each Sunday at 11am and 7pm. 

Morning Services are currently being held in The Tryst. There is a crèche for children up to the age of 3, and older children go out to Sunday School during the service. (Just follow the crowd!) You are invited to stay for a cup of tea or coffee, after the service.

Evening Services are held jointly with friends from neighbouring churches. During June, Evening Services will be held in a variety of locations (see Sunday Worship page for details); during July they will be held in the Tryst, and during August they will be in Wellington Church.
