Welcome to the website of St Aidan's Episcopal Church, Clarkston, on the south side of Glasgow. We are part of the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway, in the Scottish Episcopal Church, a province of the worldwide  Anglican Communion. We are also in full communion with the Lutheran Churches of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden, in the Porvoo Communion. Our congregation includes individuals and families from many parts of the world, and everyone is welcome to share in our worship and fellowship.


In compliance with measures introduced by the Scottish Government, services and all other activities on the church premises are suspended until further notice. Unless further announcements are made, the arrangements detailed in the notice and video below will apply when public worship is resumed.

Morning Prayer on "Zoom" will continue to be offered on each day at 9.30. Directions for logging in may be found below, together with details for on-line worship offered by the Bishops on Sunday mornings.

The Conversion of St Paul 

Almighty God, who by the preaching of your blessed apostle Paul caused the light of the gospel to shine among the nations: grant that we, who celebrate his wonderful conversion, may be united with him in bearing witness to your truth; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.


Almighty and eternal God, behold us in our weakness: and stretch out your hands to protect us; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Re-opening of Church Building

From 2 August, the church will be open for private prayer on Sundays, from 9.30 to 11.00.

In order to mitigate risk of contagion, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be introduced. Stewards will be on duty to assist in this, and further information will be contained in the Magazine, to be issued this week.

It is necessary that we have advance notice of who will be intending, and, in case of need to track and trace, record contact details, and store these securely for three weeks. Please e-mail banu60@hotmail.com to notify us of your intentions, including contact particulars, and the number of members of the household who will be attending.

Welcome Back to St Aidan's (guidance on COVID safe communion) When Communion is re-introduced to our services we've devised a system arranged to keep you distanced from your fellow worshippers as you go forward, receive communion and return to your seat. It's easier to show you than to write a description! So we've made a short video which you can watch here:

Morning Prayer is offered daily at 9.30. All are invited to join, via the link:
