Church Archives

​Church records are one of the richest sources of private archives that we hold.  The Archives are the recognised repository for:

  • Church of Scotland - records of Glasgow Presbytery and its kirk sessions from the 16th to the 20th century, including seceding churches which reunited with the established church in 1900 and 1929.
  • Episcopalian Church of Scotland - records of the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway, including records of the diocese itself and of a large number of churches.
  • Records of Baptist, Congregationalist, Evangelical, Methodist and Unitarian churches.

Our Church Archives leaflet  provides further information on the collections we hold.
