Welcome

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 Episcopal Church, in Glasgow’s West End.

We are a church in the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway, one of the seven historic dioceses of the Scottish Episcopal Church, a member of the world-wide Anglican Communion, and the Porvoo Communion.

Everyone is warmly invited to come to any of our services. Baptised members of all churches are welcome to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion; all are welcome at the altar for a blessing.

A Baptism, Wedding, or Funeral can be arranged by contacting the parish clergy, who, together with the pastoral assistants, are always willing to visit the housebound or those in hospital, offer a listening ear, or (where appropriate) provide practical support.

WORSHIP

There is a choral Eucharist every Sunday at 10.30 am, and further celebrations throughout the week. Click here for the programme of services and other devotions on Sundays and during the week.

ORGAN RESTORATION PROJECTSt Bride's organ stalls

Our magnificent, largely unaltered 1865 William Hill organ now needs to undergo a complete restoration. The organ was originally installed in Anderston-St Peter’s Parish Church, and was the first organ in Scotland to be used legally in Presbyterian worship. It was moved to St Bride’s in 1972 when St Peter’s closed. Please see our Organ and Events pages for more details and information about fundraising events, and how you can support this exciting project.
