The Venue

St Francis Community Centre is managed by Glasgow Life on behalf of Glasgow City Council, as a resource for the local community and as a business venue.  It was built in 1861 and is an A-listed building.  It was designed by Peter Paul Pugin.  The venue was originally a church, but in 1998, £1.3m was spent converting it into a community centre.  

St Francis Community Centre can be used for a variety of community, social and commercial activities, including but not restricted to meetings, small conferences, classes, clubs, arts and crafts, sports activities, dance classes, slimming clubs and martial arts classes.  The magnificent gothic grandeur of the venue makes it an ideal venue for weddings, functions and parties.  

To make a booking enquiry, please call us on 0141 429 0275.

Experienced staff are always on hand to assist with any special requirements.

Please note that in accordance with Government Policy, smoking is not permitted in St Francis Community Centre or our surrounding grounds.
