I lived in Corbett St when I was a teenager and we used to go to this church, my grandparents are buried there. I used to the love the Midnight service at Christmas, it was lovely.
Such a pity to see this once proud and beautiful church being gradually vandalised and set fire to.
My Mum no longer lives in Tollcross so havn't been there for some years.
While on holiday I met a couple from Baillieston and her mother lives in Altyre St. Tollcross, she told me that Altyre St and Dalness St. are due to be demolished to make way for some development connected to the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
