It was a momentous day for the congregation when Mosspark Church held its dedication ceremony in 1929.

The site for the kirk had been chosen even before roads had been created to the 1500 new homes built by Glasgow Corporation to form the new suburb during the 1920s.

In 1924, as a wooden hall offered temporary accommodation for worshippers in Arran Drive, fundraising for a permanent building got under way.

By April, the Building Fund reached £400, before it was boosted by a bazaar that raised more than £2000 and bequests from Baird Trust of £2000, Bellahouston Trust of £500 and Ferguson Bequest of £250.

Building began in spring 1927, with Lord Stair, the Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, laying the foundation stone.

The day of the dedication ceremony brought brilliant sunshine as Church of Scotland moderator Dr J Montgomery Campbell and United Free Church of Scotland moderator, Right Rev Dr J. Harry Miller took part months before their organisations combined.
