Category A listed building.

Architect: Jack Coia
Style: Romanesque, Byzantine
Groundbreaking: 1932
Completed: 1933

St. Anne Dennistoun Glasgow RC church

My son and I were kindly shown the interior of this intriguing church, having given some advice on various aspects of building maintenance! The church serves the Polish community in the East End.

St. Anne RC church Dennistoun Glasgow

The architect was Jack Coia, who designed the church in a mixture of Romanesque and Byzantine Revival styles. Coia would design around 30 buildings for the Catholic Church.

The church takes its cruciform shape from a series of semi-circular reinforced concrete portals converging on a central apex.

Archbishop Mario Conti described St Anne’s as the “Jewel of the Archdiocese”.

Photos taken at 1 Kelvinside Gardens (G20 6BG) in North West Glasgow the 5th of July 2020 by Adrian Welch:

Another visit to St Charles Borromeo Church in North Kelvinside, this time with my architecture student son. The rather austere building dates from 1959/60, using a reinforced concrete skeletal frame.

St Charles Borromeo Church in North Kelvinside gable facade

The main body of the church was formed from seven concrete portals, infilled with red rustic brickwork. It is an interesting design by former Glasgow architects Gillespie Kidd & Coia, but the East gable (pictured) is a little flat, and the ‘bell’ tower with three underslung speakers is too heavy.

The church was closed but post-pandemic it will be good to revisit and enjoy the interior.

Designed by Andy MacMillan and Izzy Metstein of Gillespie Kidd & Coia for a tight, steep hillside site and built 1959-60.

St Charles Borromeo Church Modern Glasgow building

The most notable internal feature is the facetted concrete roof.

The church contains excellent sculptures by Benno Schotz: bronze altar frontal, crucifix and lampholder and twelve terracotta Stations of the Cross based on parishioners and friends of Schotz.

The concrete tower acts as a spire and sits seperately to the north of the church next to the presbytery, a large red sandstone building.
