Hi Parkhouse and welcome to the site. I only went there once or twice but my big sister was a regular there in the 50's. That's if it is the Grove Street Institute you are talking about! Attached Image

I went to Grove Institue, and the Braid Street one also in the early 50s.

I still remember singing, ' Deep and Wide', and ' My cups full and Running Over'. laugh.gif

Heather, I went to the Grove Street Institute when I lived in Grove Street.even although my Mother was catholic.I remember getting a wee book full of Bible stories and Pictures for good attendance,I loved it!
My favourite time was the Harvest service.I do remember singing 'my cup's full and running over'It has always stuck in my mind even although it was over 50 years ago.
Do you remember the Pillars outside the Doors? my Cousins and I used to shimmy up them to see who could get the highest. I can't imagine being that "Gallus" now

Faffy, it's too many years ago to remember any pillars. We were too busy hiding among our Protestant pals as some of us were Catholic and someone told us Catholics were not allowed in. sad.gif

When we went to the Braid Street one, we had to be very careful as it was just down the road from St. Joseph's Chapel. We thought we would get a telling off from the Priest if he saw us going in.

Oh the fantasies of childhood. laugh.gif

The Pillars were part of the front Facade beside the big doors. They were slatted and we could get oor wee feet in between the stones to be able to climb up. Since I was only wee aboot 5 at the time, it must have been exciting enough for me to remember all these years later. Since all my Cousins were Catholic I can remember going to St Joseph's with them many times. I remember going to tap dancing in an annex beside the Chapel with my Cousin. My Mother went to Sister of Mercy Convent School in Garnethill.
Number 61 Grove street seems to have been a "family Close" a lot of my relatives have lived in that Close at some time or another,others in the next close up.Others in Burnside Street, Braid Street and North Woodside Road,I have a lot of great memories of that area.I went back there all the time until I emmigrated to Canada in 1969.

Hi all, my name is Paul Ede and I am one of the current Trustees of the Grove Christian Centre, which is the ongoing inheritor of the rich heritage of the Grove Christian Mission going all the way back to the 1830's in Cowcaddens. Check out the current website here: http://sites.google.com/site/grovechristiancentre/ - we still operate a premises in Possilpark.
