Kenmuir Mount Vernon Church, 2405 London Road, Glasgow G32 8XU

OS Grid Ref: NS 657627



The church was built in 1882-83 as Kenmuir Church on the lands of the same name, in the south western part of the Old Monkland Parish. It was intended to provide for the local population of about 3,000 in Carmyle, Mount Vernon, Fullarton, Broomhouse and the Clyde Iron Works.
Originally a Chapel of Ease, it was later erected to a fully quoad sacra parish as Kenmuir Church of Scotland and was disjoined from Old Monkland Parish. It was not until 1932 that it acquired the addition of Mount Vernon to its title, reflecting the increase in importance of that part of the parish and the territorial adjustments taking place in the wake of the Church union of 1929. In 1976, when Glasgow once again expanded its municipal authority, the church was transferred to Glasgow Presbytery from that of Hamilton.
In 1978, the charges of Kenmuir Mount Vernon and Carmyle were linked; an arrangement which continues.
