Built in 1863, Park Church and is the oldest place of worship in the village of Uddingston. Receiving its present name in 1900 due to its founding upon Park Field, the building stands in the centre of the village Main Street as beacon of Christian witness for over 150 years.
Park was originally established as a United Presbyterian church, and transitioned along with its denomination into The United Free Church of Scotland during the Disruption, where it remain until 1929 when it became a member of The Church of Scotland. In 2007, under the firm conviction that God wanted a place of witness on Uddingston Main Street, the congregation began a major church refurbishment that led to a withdrawl from The Church of Scotland and a re-introduction to The United Free Church of Scotland.
The spritual growth of Park Church was assisted by 10 ministers over our history. Below is a short biography of each minister, formed through the recollections of our own members.
