Glasgow Cathedral is a medieval cathedral which has an active Christian congregation in the Church of Scotland.

As an active Christian congregation of the Church of Scotland, within the Presbytery of Glasgow, the Cathedral always has a number of events running. We aim to publicise these and encourage your attendance and participation wherever possible.

With a wealth of musical and vocal talent and ability, we are blessed with many fine recitals during the year. There are also Summer Music Recitals and a Winter Lecture Series. Details of these will be given as far in advance as possible.

The wonderful architecture of the Cathedral speaks for itself and is to be enjoyed by anyone who visits it.
