Church Overview

This was the first church designed by H E Clifford and was built 1893-1895 as Pollokshields Titwood Church in Glencairn Drive, Pollokshields, Glasgow. The church was dismantled by Thomson, McCrea and Sanders and moved to Meikelrig Crescent in Pollok between 1951 and 1953 and renamed St James’ (Pollok) Parish Church. The congregation worshipped in a school hall and then in a wooden hut until the building was completed. The church is Gothic in style, roughly cruciform in plan, with tall windows. Good stained glass. Within the sanctuary there is a storytelling centre ‘The Village’ which provides programmes of events for the community.
