Members of Helensburgh Parish Church are inviting the public through the building’s doors for their first open day since 2019.

Taking place on Saturday, September 23 from 10am to 4pm, visitors will be able to see the Church of Scotland building’s stained-glass windows, listen to music, have a hot drink, and find out more about the church.

The event will be suitable for all ages as Helensburgh Parish Church [HPC] has planned fun activities for children to enjoy.

The church has not been open outside of its Sunday services since the Covid-19 lockdown hit in 2020.

Church elder Graham Philips said: “Everyone is welcome to see our splendid sanctuary, with its impressive stained glass - especially the John Logie Baird Memorial Window.

“Come along to hear some music, to have a tea or coffee and to see what HPC does for its members and others.

“There will also be a quiz trail for children.”

HPC’s halls were named The Bridge as they aim to connect the church and community and can be hired for classes, meetings, and events.

The church hopes that those who use the halls will visit the church to see inside and learn more about the main building.
