Cambuslang Baptist Church, 2 Cadzow Drive, Cambuslang G72 8ND

OS Grid Ref: NS 641602



The first meeting of Baptists in Cambuslang took place on the 4th November 1880. An extract from the first entry in the Church Minute Book reads, "Gospel Hall, Main Street, Cambuslang. Nov. 4th 1880. A fellowship Prayer Meeting of Baptist Brethren was held here this evening. The Chairman requested that those present might express their individual opinions regarding our position as Baptists in Cambuslang, and what would be the best course to adopt under the circumstances. It was the general opinion that we should have a fellowship meeting once a week and we take time to consider the matter further. It was agreed that we meet again next. Thursday evening at 8 o'clock same place." http://www.cambuslangbaptistchurch.org.uk/default5.cfm?theSection=5&theSubject=19

The WW1 memorial plaque is located in the Memorial Hall.
