Dennistoun Thistle is delighted to announce the support of St Andrews East Parish Church in Dennistoun.
St Andrews East Parish Church is a warm, welcoming congregation of the Church of Scotland. Located on Alexandra Parade with its eye catching red railings the church is integral to the local community. A variety of classes from keep fit to brownies run in the hall weekly and the Church also supports a number of local and global initiatives including the North East Foodbanks, Christmas gift appeals at nearby schools and the work of Christian aid.
The club will be joining the Strathclyde Evangelical Churches league for season 19/20 and the support of the church in this has been integral to this. The league gives the opportunity for different congregations to meet and now St Andrews East is part of this network too.
The team is also looking forward to supporting the church with some of their initiatives throughout the season, so look out for info on how you can get involved too!
Not only have St Andrews East been great at supporting our application to the Churches League, but the congregation has been extremely welcoming to members of our club who attend the Church. It truly is a friendly place where everyone is welcome to come along and it’s been great getting to know the members better. (They’re even planning to come along and cheer us on at a game or two!)
Everyone at Dennistoun Thistle would like to say a huge thanks to St Andrews East for their support over the past few months. We’re looking forward to working closely together as the season progresses!

We’re also still looking for players, fans and sponsors too, so if you’d like to be involved in some way or find out more about the club then please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to talk.
