1920 - 1928 "In The Beginning"

St David's is one of the several churches built to serve the new tenants of Knightswood, the site being formerly part of the adjoining golf course.


1929 - 1939 "The Early Years"

Depicting the church in its infancy, the changeover of the name from Knightswood West to St David's Knightswood and the receiving of the organ from St David's-in-the-West, Cromwell Street, Glasgow.

(This arrangement is dedicated to Miss Bessie Stivens whose love of flowers and of her Saviour inspired many flower festivals in St David's. Sadly, Bessie died 2 weeks before our 70th anniversary flower festival was staged - this decade was to be her arrangement)

1970 - 1979 "Youth and Outreach"

During this decade St David's Youth Fellowship Work blossomed, Youth Clubs, Uniformed Organisations, The Fellowship and Sunday Schools, were an inspiration to children and young people, and the seed of Christian service sown in many hearts.
