Carmunnock Parish Church, Kirk Road, Carmunnock, Glasgow G76 9BY

OS Grid Ref: NS 599575



The church is also known as The Kirk in the Braes. It was rebuilt in 1767 on a pre-Reformation site and repaired in 1840. It has an external stone staircase leading to the old family galleries of Castlemilk, Dripps and Cathkin. The ancient graveyard has a watch-house with original instructions for grave watchers 1828, and a burial vault of the Stirling-Stuart family, Lairds of Castlemilk.



Inside the church beneath the organ gallery is the Roll of Honour listing the one hundred and seventeen men from the Parish who served in World War 1.
The pulpit is flanked by two fine stained-glass windows, dedicated in 1922 as a War Memorial. They are the work of Norman McLeod MacDougall, artist, who lived in the village.




GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS
THAT A MAN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIEND





THE LORD WILL GO BEFORE THEE HE WILL
NOT FORSAKE THEE FEAR NOT



The names of the thirteen men who fell in World War 1 are listed on each window.
