Our history

Queen’s Park Govanhill Parish Church was established in July 2014 with the union of the former congregations of Queen’s Park and Govanhill Trinity. The first minister of the united congregation, Rev Dr Elijah Smith, took up his post on 21 January 2015. More information will follow soon…

The late Jane Haining was a member of the former congregation of Queen’s Park West Parish Church. From 1932, she served as matron for the Girls’ Home of the Jewish Mission Station at Budapest and was arrested in 1944. That same year, Ms Haining died as a Christian martyr on 17th July. She is one of ten Scots thought to have died in Nazi extermination camps. Read more about Jane Haining here.
