Ecclesiastical building in use as such. The first minister, Rev. Alexander Tait, raised the parish from a mission to a full charge, and raised money for the building of a new church and manse. The church merged with Gartcosh as the Glenboig Parish churches in 1985. Glenboig is similar to the church at Longriggend, also by George Arthur, 1891.
