Hillington Park Parish Church, 24 Berryknowes Road, Glasgow G52 2UD

OS Grid Ref: NS 533639



The Congregation was originally called Cardonald United Free Church and was formed by the Glasgow Presbytery of the United Free Church of Scotland. There was a United Free Church in Ibrox from where it was deemed that there was a need to spread the gospel further west into the expanding area of Cardonald. Sites for building were explored at Halfway and the corner of Bellahouston drive, Paisley Road West and finally the present site on the east side of Berryknowes Road was chosen. www.hpchurch.co.uk
