AGM and St Columbkille’s Visit
Join us for the annual Strathclyde Group AGM and a tour of this fascinating structure.
Venue: St Columbkille’s Church, 2 Kirkwood St, Rutherglen, Glasgow G73 2SL
Cost: £10 (please note that attendance at the AGM is free and the the costs relate to donations, lunches and gratuities.)
By kind permission of St Columbkille’s Church our annual general meeting will be held in the church hall and will be followed by a guided tour. St Columbkille’s is a category A listed church designed by Jack Coia of Gillespie, Kidd & Coia and was completed in 1940. The church has recently undergone an extensive two phased conservation and repair project to both the exterior and the interior led by Mr Brian A. Park of Page/Park Architects. The tour will be conducted by Hamish Macbeth who was also involved with the project.
There is no direct vechile access from Main Street (B768) to Kirkwood Street and it is reached via Greenhill Road off either the A730 or the A749.
Due to limited parking within the church’s private car park it is recommended that use is made of the public car park on the roof of the adjacent Rutherglen Shopping Centre which is accessed via a ramp off Greenhill Road. There is a small parking charge payable.
The AGM will be held in the church hall (a former primary school) located to the left of the car park.
Arrangements have been made with South Lanarkshire Leisure & Culture to have use of the Exhibition Room in Rutherglen Town Hall for a soup and snadwich lunch with teas and coffee.
