“We believe our faith needs to be lived out in our actions and so we are always looking for new ways to open our buildings to serve the community and welcome community groups. However, we are also conscious of our duty to care for the environment and so we are looking to discover how to make our buildings as eco-friendly as possible.”
-Iona Craig, Community Outreach Worker
It is our pleasure to introduce Maryhill Parish Church; a vibrant and welcoming community in the Northwest of Glasgow that really demonstrates the kind of values that we are looking to promote.
Throughout the week, they are open for parent and toddler groups, dance classes for seniors and addiction support. All of this is extremely important, even more so in today’s world where so many people are struggling to find work and have been isolated for so long during COVID. To be able to offer this support to their local community, Maryhill Parish maintains three buildings across two sites: a traditional church, a hall designed by Rennie Mackintosh and another hall which now functions as their main building.
As summer ends, it will become more difficult to make these three spaces comfortable enough to run their activities, especially considering that children and seniors will be more vulnerable to colder temperatures. This is why we want to get moving as soon as possible with Maryhill Parish.
