The church from which this service comes stands on the banks of the Kelvin, just a short way downstream from Glasgow's new Broadcasting House. Its crown tower is one of the landmarks of the north-west of the city.
It owes its foundation to the driving force of the Very Rev. Dr. George Reith (father of Sir John), who was minister of the College Free Church. It received its name in memory of Nathaniel Stevenson , father of James Stevenson , LL.D., whose generosity was largely responsible for making the building possible. It was opened in February, 1902, as an extension church to serve as a place of worship for the College Church mission.
The Boys' Brigade, now a worldwide movement, was inaugurated in the College Church mission in 1883 by Sir William A. Smith. The original company, the 1st Glasgow, is now attached to Stevenson Memorial Church, and the officers and boys will be worshipping at this broadcast service.
