Carmyle Parish Church, 155 Carmyle Avenue, Carmyle G32 8DP

OS Grid Ref: NS 648618




Due to the zeal of the Kirk session of Victoria Church, Tollcross, who vigorously pressed the Glasgow Presbytery to appoint a missionary to supervise the outlying districts of the Clyde Iron Works and Carmyle, their request was granted in 1896. During the summer months open air services were held on the Bleachfield Green. Home visits and Bible classes were introduced by Mr. Anderson, who had been appointed missionary for the area.
In August 1896, a committee, dealing with financial matters, was formed, and as a result of the mission’s success, a recommendation was made, that an iron church be erected in Carmyle, until such times as a permanent structure could be built.
After several months of negotiations, the present site was purchased and an iron church erected. The first service, held there, was on 2nd March 1902. By 1905 weather conditions had eroded the metal structure to such an extent that the necessity of building a permanent structure became of paramount importance to the new minister, the Rev. John Calderwood. At a session meeting, the decision was made to erect a building, at an estimated cost of £2,500. Grants of up to £1,400 were expected and a three day bazaar, held in the Trades Hall Glassford Street, Glasgow, raised £1,750. The dedication service of the “new” church was held on 17th March, 1907. www.carmylechurch.co.uk

Daily Record and Mail Friday July 21, 1916
"CHURCH WORKER KILLED
Second-Lieutenant Richard Logan, who has been killed, enlisted shortly after the declaration of war. As a private, he served for seven months in the trenches in France with the Glasgow Highlanders, being later gazetted as second-lieutenant to another battalion of the Highland Light Infantry. In civil life, Lieut. Logan had commenced business for himself as a shirt manufacturer just before the outbreak of hostilities. He was a zealous church worker, and was a well-known and highly respected member of the United Free Church, Carmyle. He was thirty-one years of age and the youngest son of Mr Robert Logan, superintendant of the Grove Street Institute, Glasgow, who at one time occupied a similar position in the Tent Hall"
