O Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness:
Let all the earth be moved at his presence (Psalm 96. 9)
Welcome to St Bride’s Scottish Episcopal Church, part of the world-wide Anglican Communion. Our Rector is The Revd Dr Kevin Francis, who is also Honorary Anglican Chaplain at the University of Glasgow.

The Memorial Garden is open for any who would like to visit and sit quietly.
Music is of fundamental importance to the life of St Bride’s, and every week you will hear a variety of beautiful choral and organ music at the services and events that take place here. On the 3rd Sunday of each month (except July and August) we have a special service of Choral Evensong and Benediction, where the choir sings more elaborate music. See our Organ, Choir, Music List and Events pages for more information.
Above all, we want you to be a part of our community. We are dedicated to making St Bride’s a warm, welcoming and friendly place for everyone who visits us. So, if you are in the area, do pop in and say hello!
The highlight of our worship each week is the Choral Eucharist (or High Mass) celebrated at 10.30 am every Sunday morning, and we have further services during the week. Baptised members of all churches are welcome to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion, and everyone is welcome at the altar for a blessing. Refreshments are served after Choral Eucharist on Sunday mornings and at other times as well. This is a great opportunity to chat and get to know each other.
A Baptism, Wedding or Funeral can be arranged by contacting the Rector (email@example.com) who, together with our pastoral assistants, are always willing to visit the housebound or those in hospital, offer a listening ear, or (where appropriate) provide practical support.
