History

Background

The congregation of Partick South came together in 1978 as a tri-union of Newton Place, Partick Anderson and Hamilton Crescent churches using the then existing building of Newton Place located on the main thoroughfare of Dumbarton Road.  A modern multi- purpose Sanctuary was opened in 1988 on the site of the previous building

A new suite of halls was built onto the church and was opened in 2002.

Since the union the charge has had four ministers. Rev W. Douglas Lindsay, Rev Kenneth D Stott, Rev Alan L Dunnett and the present minister Rev Andy McIntyre who was Ordained and Inducted on the 6th October 2010.


The Parish

The parish area of Partick South is located in the west end of Glasgow on the North side of the River Clyde.  The parish area is located within the Partick area which shares a number of adjoining parishes.  

Partick is an area of mainly tenement style housing split between owner/occupier and local housing association with small retail units supplying local services.  In the area at present there is one retail park containing one supermarket with other outlets and one other supermarket complex.  Area has good public transport. New building has just been completed within the parish and further building development is expected in the future. A major housing development has been established on the banks of the river Clyde known as the Glasgow Harbour. Recently in June 2011 the new Transport Museum was built on the edge of the Clyde and sits on the border of the parish and is attracting a great many people to Partick.
