The Point is the project hub for QPBC’s community outreach and development work, and a beautiful community venue.
Welcome to The Point! Queen’s Park Baptist Church brand new hub for the community of Govanhill, Pollokshields and the city of Glasgow. Newly refurbished in 2019, The Point offers a meeting place or venue for many types of community and business events. We also organise a number of community projects, and partner with charities and enterprises from across the city as part of our dedication to Calling Our City To Life.
Named after Glasgow’s local parks, our meeting rooms and halls seat from 3 to 150 people, and are available to hire as Scottish Government COVID-19 restrictions allow. FAQ’s
For more information or to check availability please contact us through the church office on 0141 423 3962.
Our two main halls, Thornwood and Pollok, are wonderful spaces for a variety of large events. Tables and seating can be arranged to suit your needs, be it conference, café, dining. Thornwood is a multipurpose hardwood floor hall and thus well suited for dances and ceilidhs, exercise classes, and messy activities that might require a mop afterwards!
Pollok is our pride and joy. Previously a Baptist church sanctuary, Pollok is fitted out with a fixed screen and projector for cinema and film projection, raised performance platform, custom lighting rigs and sound equipment for gigs and performances, and a small servery for canapes or drinks. Pollok has a second floor seating area for approx. 50 in addition to its ground floor capacity.
