Stewart & Paterson, 1909-11 as St Gilbert's Church, Pollokshields; re-located here 1950-4, including (plainer) halls, and polygonal session house which were built 1926-8 to designs by J J Craig & Son. Prominently sited, on an eminence overloocking Burnside.

Gothic style, with lancets. All built of rock-faced red ashlar with polished dressings (some concealed elevations faced in 1950's brick); slate roofs.

CHURCH is rectangular, with a triple-light Dunblane-type main gable facing north (otherwise mostly paired lancets), west flank a version of, eg H E Clifford's Titwood (1893-5) - ie with side aisle linking porch at one end, transept at the other; on east flank, no side aisle and no porch, but a doorway and a polygonal and shallow transept. Interior fitings also original and re-located, except organ from Belmont church. Polygonal-ended session house adjoins church east gable, ranges beyond including main hall, which has a stepped 3-lifht window.

Retaining wall to front also in red ashlar; also steps and iron lambs and railings.
