Church Overview

Built by Hean Brothers, 1836. Remarkably douce for a revivalist kirk; yet this was the seat of the Rev Robert McCheyne (1813-43), a major player in the Evangelical revival, who made these sober rafters ring. An elegant, classical church with a gallery carried on cast-iron columns. Original pulpit. The plain simplicity of the building is ennobled by the tower and stone spire against its east gable. The church has served different denominations since its opening: Free, United Free, and Church of Scotland. It became a Free Church again in 1987.
