Admin history Abbotsford Chalmers Church, Glasgow, originated with the congregation of Maitland Free Church, who built a church in Rose Street, Gorbals, in 1862 but later moved to Devon Street and petitioned for admission to the Church of Scotland. They were admitted and became Abbotsford Parish Church quoad sacra in 1877, terminating in 1933 on uniting with Chalmers South as Abbotsford Chalmers Church. The latter congregation worshipped in the former Chalmers South building in Pollokshaws Road at Cavendish Street, until terminated in turn in 1973 on uniting with three other congregations as Gorbals. As a Church of Scotland charge it was in the presbytery of Glasgow and the synod of Glasgow and Ayr (later Clydesdale).
