Kelvin Stevenson Memorial Church

Kelvin Stevenson Memorial Church is a Church of Scotland parish church, serving part of the North Kelvinside area of Glasgow, Scotland. The church is within the Church of Scotland's Presbytery of Glasgow.

Building

This distinctive church was designed by the architect J. J. Stevenson and built 1898-1902. Red sandstone is used, as in many buildings in Glasgow. It was built by the Free Church of Scotland as the Nathanial Stevenson Memorial Free Church, becoming part of the United Free Church of Scotland in 1900, which in turn united with the Church of Scotland in 1929.

The church has a "crown tower", similar to St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh and the Chapel of King's College, Aberdeen. The church is located adjacent to the River Kelvin in Belmont Street at Belmont Bridge.

History

The current congregation has been created by a union of several churches in the area, including the former East Park Church, Kelvinside Old Church and Wilton Church.

Ministry

The current minister (since 2003) is the Reverend Gordon Kirkwood.
