Sherbrooke St Gilbert's Church
Sherbrooke St. Gilbert's Church is a congregation of the Church of Scotland serving the Pollokshields and Dumbreck areas on the south side of Glasgow, Scotland. It is within the Church of Scotland's Presbytery of Glasgow.
The church was designed by the architect William Forsyth McGibbon. The hall was completed in 1894 and the church itself in 1900, as Sherbrooke United Free Church. In 1929 the United Free Church united with the Church of Scotland.
The present congregation was created from the union of the former separate ex-UF Sherbrooke Church and St Gilbert's Parish Church (which had been part of the pre-1929 Church of Scotland).
The church building is located at 240 Nithsdale Road, close to Dumbreck railway station.
Shortly after the completion of a major refurbishment, the church was destroyed by fire in 1994. The burnt out shell of the building was, however, able to be restored. The rebuilt sanctuary has notable, modern stained glass windows.
The current minister (since 2003) is the Reverend Thomas L. Pollock.
