Church Overview

Stone-built hall church with simple Gothic detailing with pointed openings throughout. Designed by John Herbertson of Glasgow, in 1832; the tower and transepts were added in 1882, designed by Stewart & Wilson. The three-stage, square-plan tower at the west end has a pyramid roof with weathervane finial. The look of the interior dates from the time when the transepts were added. Tiered gallery supported cast-iron columns. Half-octogon Gothic pulpit with gabled canopy and panelled sides. Plain boarded timber pews. Pair of stained glass windows on either side of the pulpit, probably late 19th century; incorporating floral decoration within a Gothic border and biblical texts at the foot. Organ in west transept by Rushworth & Dreaper, 1951.


Sundays: 11.15am.
