King’s Park Church has been mark­ing its 85th an­niver­sary this year - and they’ve kindly let Re­former read­ers have a snap­shot of their his­tory with a col­lec­tion of old pho­tos.

The images are from a ex­hi­bi­tion the church held on Septem­ber 13.

Hun­dreds of pho­to­graphs and mem­o­ra­bilia were on dis­play for mem­bers of the con­gre­ga­tion to view.

There were 85 years of mag­a­zine and news­pa­per ar­ti­cles as well as pho­to­graphs of the Kirk ses­sion and all the min­is­ters from when the church first started.

As well as that, there were pho­tos from wed­dings, BB, Brownie, Guides, bands, choir and all the many groups over many years.

Some of the pho­tos de­pict the Daffy Girls, who emerged from the young wives and mother and toddler group in 1970.

The group came about when a dozen or so peo­ple, mainly com­mit­tee mem­bers, ac­cepted a chal­lenge to put on their own en­ter­tain­ment for their daf­fodil tea.

It proved such a hit that the group went on to en­ter­tain many groups around Glas­gow.
