About St Silas Church, Glasgow

service 9a b w

We are a contemporary evangelical anglican congregation, worshipping in the heart of the city of Glasgow. We are a church with a vision to reach, grow and send.

What we're about

cross 1

When you visit a church website, you might be looking to find out what we do. But at St Silas, we are defined as a church family not by what we do, but much more by what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. We are a group of ordinary people, who are a welcoming family of believers in Jesus.

Our vision is summed up in our desire to Reach, Grow and Send.

We want to reach out to others and see them come to know Jesus, who offers eternal life and hope to all who believe in Him. We want to grow to maturity in our relationship with the living God. And we want to send people out to serve God through mission both at home and abroad.


About our Vision and Values

Who we are

Who we are

At St Silas we are a varied group of people of all ages worshipping God together. For example, if you came to visit our 11am Sunday service, you'd find people who have been attending St Silas for over 60 years, spending time with 60 or more children, and pretty much everything in between.

Our congregation is made up of people from all walks of life. Students (especially from the nearby Glasgow University), parents, young and old, from all sorts of different nations and backgrounds.

As well as people from nearby the church, we gather from across the whole city. People from all parts of Glasgow, and as far as Bearsden, Newton Mearns, Cambuslang and Paisley come together each Sunday and throughout the week.

If you are looking for a church in Glasgow, why not come and visit us this Sunday?

Styles of worship at St Silas

Styles of worship at St Silas


As a contemporary, anglican evangelical congregation, at our services we seek to glorify God and encourage each other through various styles of corporate worship.

We strive to be friendly and welcoming, and accessible and informal while also being reverent towards our great God as we gather in His name. We hope that our meetings resound with the goodness and undeserved kindness of God, as revealed to us in the person and work of Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Musically, at our 11am and 6.30 services, our bands seek to lead using the best of contemporary worship music, while also drawing from the rich heritage of some of the great hymns of the past.

As an Anglican church, we are part of a global family of churches, and we benefit hugely from a much-loved tradition of liturgy - especially when we share the Lord's Supper together.

Monthly, on the first Sunday, we also enjoy a 9am service that still uses the liturgy of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer that for centuries has been the foundational prayer book for many Anglican churches around the world.
