Church Archives

Church Archives

Church records are one of the richest sources of private archives that are held in The Mitchell. 

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