The village lies north of Muirhead, 7 miles (11 km) east of Glasgow – the exact boundary between the two villages is difficult to find. Geographically, Moodiesburn is often included in the Chryston district: Devro headquarters has Chryston as its official address, and Moodiesburn's Stoneyetts Hospital (originally part of East Muckcroft within the "Woodilee Estate") was sometimes listed under Chryston. As with Muirhead, children born of Moodiesburn citizens have Chryston as their birth district on their birth certificate.
Chryston Parish Church serves the villages of Chryston, Moodiesburn and Muirhead and has churches in Chryston and Moodiesburn.
On Friday 18 September, 1959, 47 miners lost their lives in the Auchengeich mining disaster at nearby Auchengeich Colliery.
