St Luke's Orthodox Cathedral, Glasgow

St. Luke's Greek Orthodox Cathedral is a cathedral of the Greek Orthodox Church located in the area of Dowanhill in the west end of Glasgow, Scotland.

The Church was designed by James Sellars and built in 1877, originally as the Belhaven Church for a United Presbyterian congregation which met there until 1960. It was converted to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of St. Luke, and paid for by Sir Reo Stakis. Stakis had also paid for the first Greek Orthodox church in the city, in 1953.

It was built in the Normandy Gothic style, as preferred by its previous owners and inspired by Dunblane Cathedral.

The other cathedrals in Glasgow are Glasgow Cathedral (Church of Scotland), St. Andrew's Cathedral (Roman Catholic) and St. Mary's Cathedral (Episcopalian).
