Church History

In the beginning. The first Communion Roll of Hillhead Free Church (then in the Presbytery of Paisley) was drawn up in November 1854.  From that date we can trace a direct link to Jordanhill Parish Church today.

For the first four years the new congregation had no home and worshipped each Sunday in the small school on Knightswood Road. The first church was built in 1858, also on Knightswood Road, in the grounds of what became Knightswood Hospital and is now a housing development.

By the end of the century it had become clear that a new site would have to be found and the foundation stone of our current building in Woodend Drive was laid in 1904.  The first morning and evening services in the new sanctuary were held on 11th June 1905 and we have been worshipping here ever since.
