A church with a heart for the community


About Us

Mearns Kirk is situated in the southwest Glasgow suburb of Newton Mearns. The church building is one of the oldest in the area - dating back to 1813.
Our large congregation is part of the Church of Scotland and details of our Services which take place on Sundays and midweek can be found on these pages.
We strive to serve the community we live in and offer support groups and activities in our halls for everyone

(Click here for more info on activities and groups).



The graveyard which surrounds the church has been the final resting place of many parishioners - the oldest legible inscription dates back to 1611, the last internment occurred in the 1950s.  A separate website which allows you to search and view the gravestones in the graveyard is available through this link:-https://graveyard.mearnskirk.church


Car Parking:

The car park is in front of the church building with about 50 bays including ones for the disabled. There is also a well-used overflow car park with re-enforced plastic netting on the grass.

Disabled Access:
Our church building is easily accessible with a tarmac footpath, including a handrail, leading from the car park into the main entrance door. Inside all floors are level and the only stairs lead up to the chancel area and the balconies.

We have one space for a wheelchair at the end of the first pew and further spaces can be provided by moving chairs on the left hand side of the chancel area.

There is one toilet (disabled friendly) beside the vestry, through the curtain doors on the left when facing the pulpit.

Our halls are separate from the church building, with a short road downhill from the main church car park - alongside our large green glebe. The small car park outside our halls has space for about 9 cars including three bays for disabled drivers.

Locum Minister: Rev Eddie Simpson

Session Clerks: Marje Gillies; Liz Ronald; Christina Shafi

There are many stained glass windows gracing the church, which bathe the congregation in coloured light when the sun shines. Recent changes to those upstairs bathe the church in new and ever changing light. more...
