Berkeley Street United Presbyterian Church Literary Association


Members of this literary association were most likely part of the congregation of the Berkeley Street United Presbyterian Church, which was located at Charing Cross. (For more information about this church, see ‘Berkeley Street UP Church‘ on The Glasgow Story website).

There is very little known about this group. The association is mentioned as taking part in a Parliamentary Election, along with the Free St. Matthew’s Y.M.C. Union and the Wellington Church Literary Association, on 28 November 1892.
