Welcome to the Presbytery of Glasgow website. We launched our new website just a few months ago and we hope it will provide up-to-date and useful information about Presbytery and its congregations for members and visitors alike. If you're looking for a church in your area, just click here. Presbytery members who have not yet registered for the website can register here. (Please note that website membership is currently only for Presbytery members.) We'll be adding a lot more content to the website over the coming weeks and months, so check back regularly to see what's new, and don't forget to share your news and upcoming events with us.
The Church of Scotland traces its roots back to the beginnings of Christianity in Scotland, but its identity is principally shaped by the Scottish Reformation of 1560. Its current membership is about 12% of the Scottish population - although many more Scots and descendants of Scots in other countries claim some form of allegiance to it.
Thanks to donations from all over Scotland and beyond, the 2013 Stamp Appeal was a great success, raising £4,072 (beating the previous year's total by over £700!). This year's appeal will support Dorcas Refuge House, run by the Greek Evangelical Church, which offers a safe home for female victims of domestic violence and their children. Women who use the house are not asked for any financial contribution, so the money you raise will help with running costs.
You can help to provide these women and their children with a safe place to call home - just donate your used postage stamps to the Appeal. All donations are welcome - no amount is too large or small, and stamp albums are also accepted.
