Knightswood Congregational Church, 12 Dunterlie Avenue, Glasgow G13 3BA

UKNIWM: Not Listed
OS Grid Ref: NS 526687




In the autumn of 1933, thanks to the generous giving of Congregational Churches throughout Scotland, and considerable foresight on the part of the Church Extension Committee of the day, the Church in Knightswood was erected and consecrated to the worship and glory of God.
Two years earlier, in 1931, it had been intimated at the Annual Assembly that an excellent site had been secured in Knightswood, an important suburb in the west of Glasgow. By October 1933 the building had been completed.

There are two WW2 memorials; both are located in the Memorial Hall which was built in 1950 in memory of those who were killed in WW2. The first is for Knightswood Church and can be found here



The above memorial is originally from Dundas Street Congregational Church. As the caption states Knightswood Church took it into safe keeping.
The memorial is inscribed as follows:

AMOR VINCIT OMNIA (Love Conquers All)
1939 19145

THIS CHURCH WHO FELL IN ACTIVE SERVICE
