A bit of history…

What is now the church, was originally built as the church halls in 1941. The original church is just a stone’s throw away but is now demolished. It was built in 1826 on land gifted by Lilias Graham (Mary Hill’s daughter) and has a surrounding graveyard. The foundations were damaged when a bomb was dropped in Kilmun Street, not far from the church, during the Clydebank Blitz. This led to structural problems with the building and the congregation eventually had to move into the halls in the early 1980s. The original church was later demolished for safety reasons. Following the conditions of the gift from Lilias Graham, once the land ceased to be used for a church it was returned to the inheritor’s estate. A group called Friends of Maryhill Road Graveyard are campaigning to improve the condition of the graveyard to make it a usable space for the community.

1990 Maryhill Road has been the happy home for the church family for over 40 years now. It’s a bright, welcoming, multi-use space with both a large and small hall, helping to meet the needs of the various hall users.
