Twelve go to Govan

Govan Church

Today twelve of us ventured out of Bargarran to spend a splendid afternoon in Govan Church. The Church is tucked away between Govan Road and the Clyde and holds wondrous treasures from our ancient past.

The site has been Christian ground since the time of St Constantine and the current church was built in the Victorian times.

The stain glass windows depict Old and New testament scenes but the star of the church is the exquisite collection of Hogback stones and Pict standing stones. You can read more about it here.

The ladies who guided us round the church also served a welcome cup of tea and biscuits.
