Livingstone Memorial Church, 286 Glasgow Road, Blantyre G72 9DB

OS Grid Ref: NS 687578



The church’s roots grew from humble beginnings in 1876, when ‘kitchen gospel meetings’ were held in various homes in the town. In 1876 the gospel meetings’ moved from homes to shop premises located in Stonefield Road. In 1880 steps were taken to erect a permanent building and architects were appointed.
1913 - Statue of David Livingstone, situated in a recess at the front of the Church was unveiled by Mrs Livingstone Wilson, the daughter of David Livingstone.
