Statement of Interest

No longer in ecclesaistical use.

The congregation of the church and the United Free church amalgamated in 1996, and the Free Church also on Main Road, was chosen as the joint place of worship. The organ and memorial stained glass window from this church were removed to the former Free Church at about that time. The former Free Church, now Hurlford Church, is listed seperately.
