The former Minister was Rev Mark Johnstone, who was inducted in June 2001 until April 2019 when Mark took his new post at Glasgow Cathedral. only the fourth minister at St Mary’s since the church opened in 1914.


A striking feature of St Mary’s is the stained glass windows. With their message and the stories they tell they are part of our worship. They serve also as a memorial to some notable people from our church family. Their story as well as the artistry is facscinating and some of it is told here
