We are a Church of Scotland congregation based in Giffnock, on the Southside of Glasgow. Our aim as a congregation is to provide a warm welcome to all who join us, offer an inclusive, open and affirming ministry and demonstrate strong concern for social issues, both in our local community and further afield. We aim to act on our concern for environmental issues and work positively with other churches and faith communities. We endeavour to be a place of inspiration and sanctuary.

Our Church Magazine
Giffnock South Parish Church has been very successfully twinned with Pollokshaws Parish Church for many years. The twinning with Pollokshaws was a natural choice as the minister at that time was Rev. Margaret Whyte who had been an assistant at Giffnock South while training for the ministry.
Kwenderana means ‘walking together’ in the language of northern Malawi and our symbol combines the flags of Malawi and Scotland. The Partnership reflects a covenanted twinning with the parish church in Ekwendeni, which was built in the Scottish style around 1890, reflecting a relationship with Malawi that is continuous from the time of David Livingstone.
