Church Overview

The original building of 1900 by William Forsyth McGibbon, the adjoining hall was built in 1894. The church is cruiciform in plan, with low transepts. A big gabled front to Nithsdale Road has a 5-light window and flanking buttresses carried upwards as octagonal pinnacles. The church was ravaged by fire in 1994, its centenary year and has been marvellously restored. The interior features the work of Scottish craftsmen: stained glass windows, inspired by the themes of creation, the Cross and rebirth, by Stained Glass Design Partnership, Kilmaurs; 3-manual pipe organ by Lammermuir Pipe Organs; pulpit, tables and font by Bill Nimmo, East Lothian.
