The site for the church was gifted by Alexander Crum and his
brother William in 1891, when a separate parish of
Thornliebank was set up from Eastwood. David Tod of
Eastwood Park was a trustee. This church became known as
Thornliebank Woodlands Parish Church in 1929, and was
united with the Thornliebank Spiersbridge Church of
Scotland as Thornliebank Parish Church in 1977. (The
Spiersbridge Church was later converted into a new hall
for the church.)
