St George’s-Tron Church

In the heart of the city centre, half way up Buchanan Street, you’ll find the parish church of St George’s-Tron. The church was built on its present site in 1808, but the community of worshippers dates back to the 17th century. It has been named St George’s-Tron since 1940, when the St George’s church was combined with the Tron-St Anne’s congregation.

For the last couple of years the inside of the building has been renovated (I’ve never been inside to take a look). According to the church’s website though, it looks like the congregation have just moved back into their church after some time meeting in their church hall which I think is on Bath Street.

    Another beautiful old church building. Thanks for giving us its history. What a lot of tales it could tell if only it could tell…from 1808 to 200 years later!

  2. A beautiful church. Even after so many years, it has not lost its charming.

    I remember this church although it’s been ages since I’ve been to Glasgow! But it is so impressive that it’s impossible to forget. Hope your writing is going ok. Ciao. A.

    A beautiful church that resembles a “mighty fortress”! Wow, it certainly is a fortress in the city, judging from its age. Very impressive and the congregants must be very proud of their church!

  7. Nice photo, interesting facts!
