Church Overview

A mission kirk, built in 1883 as a counter-attraction to the nearby Free Kirk. It was built by public subscription and often referred to as ‘The Fisher Kirk’ owing to the esteem in which its longest serving Missionary, Mr Fisher, was held. Except for gas heating, all the fittings (pews, oil lamps, etc) are original.
