Bearsden Baptist Church hosts an amazing green space, open to the public right at the heart of Bearsden Cross town centre. Our site includes formal gardens and woodland, which slopes down to Bearsden Tennis Club. Our church building is situated on a Roman Fort, which was built as one of the stations on the Antonine wall We are opposite the remains of a Roman Bath House. A Roman Soldier woodcarving ‘Maximus’ who now keeps watch over the lower lawn. In partnership with the Rediscovering the Antonine Wall Project, we are in the process of developing a Roman-themed area with seating, planting and information in which to enjoy a sight and sound sensory experience, as well as a place for quiet contemplation. We aim to complete this project in 2021.”
The "Garden Vision Group" is an action group made up of church members. The group works to oversee and support the day to day care and maintenance of the gardens, raise the profile of the gardens in the local community, plan future developments and build partnerships with user groups and other interested parties.
Over the last couple of years we have worked to increase access so that more people from the local community can enjoy the space, tranquillity and beauty of our gardens. The church runs a cafe 'Bearsden Barista' and we have a wide range of user groups who currently benefit and use the space for recreation and outdoor learning.
Throughout the year we run Slow Down Breathe and Refresh, silence and contemplation sessions using our outdoor space.
