Kelvinside Hillhead is the Church of Scotland parish church for the Hillhead, Kelvinside and Kirklee areas. We are committed to loving and serving this community to which we belong.
We are a friendly, diverse and inclusive community, always keen to welcome new people. This is a place where generations meet. In worship we are nourished and challenged by lively preaching, with thoughtful liturgy and quality music both old and new.
Join us on any Sunday in this beautiful, sacred space.
Come as you are. All are welcome.
Sunday Worship: 11am
Open Church: Saturday 3-5pm
Time Out on Thursday: 12:45-1:15pm
We have regular activities and events for all ages, particularly for students and for families. There is also a lively arts ministry, with regular concerts and lots of opportunities for singers and instrumentalists. Anyone in the parish is welcome to contact us about baptisms, weddings or funerals, or for pastoral care.
Come along with family, friends and neighbours to…
A bazaar/fiesta/bonanza in the Church hall involving everyone who meets in this building, which will raise some cash for the building and various good causes but is also a great opportunity to get to know each other better, make friends and enjoy ourselves!
Browse and buy: including delicious home-baking, pre-loved books and music, interesting curiosities and toys and that wonderful stall labelled simply ‘STUFF’…
Compete: some challenges which you may have met before and some which you probably have not!
Refresh and relax: at Joyce’s wonderful tea place with a cuppa and delicious treats.
See you there!

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon in December than enjoying the greatest Christmas film of all time?

Once again we welcome the East Dumbartonshire Concert Band to our evening Carols by Candlelight service. With the church lit by the light of many candles, and the chance to sing some well-loved carols accompanied by some very talented musicians, this is a festive treat for all.
Each year as we approach Christmas we invite everyone in our community to our Christingle celebration. Christingle means “Christ light”. A Christingle is used in Advent services of many churches. Our celebration is for the whole community and is suitable for all ages. It takes place in the hall.
It includes dancing by our Highland dancers, music from choirs who meet in the hall and contributions from children’s groups. There is singing by everyone, we tell the Christmas story and every child makes a Christingle. We enjoy refreshments together afterwards.
We welcome all in the community; those who are Christian and those who are not but simply want to join us in the joy of the Christmas season. Don’t miss it. Bring your friends, your neighbours or your flatmates or just come on your own because you will find friends there.
