The St George's-Tron Church in Glasgow, Scotland, commonly known simply as "The Tron", (though it should not be confused with the 17th–century Tron Church, which lies to the south-west on Trongate) is a Church of Scotland parish church in Glasgow's city centre, located in Nelson Mandela Place near Queen Street Station. The congregation is part of the Church of Scotland's Presbytery of Glasgow.

The building, which was designed by William Stark, was opened in 1808, originally as St. George's Parish Church.

A notable minister of the parish was Tom Allan, a key figure in the Scottish evangelical movement of the mid-20th century. Still today the congregation is noted for being on the evangelical wing of the Church. The current minister is the Rev Dr William J. U. Philip.

Right on the busiest shopping street in Scotland (above Buchanan Street, Glasgow) the building is a significant presence, and the oldest in the area. It stands as a terminating vista for West George Street. St. George's-Tron Church is open 10-4pm Monday-Saturday and 10-6pm on Thursdays most weeks. Services are 11am and 6.30pm on Sundays and 1.10pm on Wednesdays.
