Garden Description:

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.  To reflect our location, in 2016 we commissioned a Roman Soldier woodcarving ‘Maximus’ who now keeps watch over the lower lawn.

The "Our Gardens for the Community Group" is an action group made up of church members. The group works to oversee and support the day to care and maintenance of the gardens, raise the profile of the gardens in the local community, plan future developments and to 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, tranquility and beauty of our gardens. We have a wide range of user groups who currently benefit and use the space for recreation and outdoor learning.

Through the support of East Dunbartonshire Council our woodlands benefit from the input of the Mugdock Rangers. 
In 2015/16 we were recipients of a grant from Stalled Spaces Scotland which has helped us to transform an under utilised derelict area at the end of the patio into a Quiet Garden,  creating a space for reflection and prayer. 

The church runs a cafe 'Bearsden Barista' on Wednesdays between 1-4pm.
