Description

J Ingram of Kilmarnock, 1875. Gothic church with steeple; manse alongside, recessed and adjoining at right; all built of rock-faced red ashlar, red-ridged slate roofs, and all set within own grounds, with boundary wall to street, iron-railed and also rock-faced ashlar, Gothic gatepiers.

CHURCH: gabled front to main road with wide entrance (sculptured marble roundel in tympanum); steeple to right alongside; essentially rectangular-plan. Unusually elaborate interior; pulpit, back-board, organ and organ gallery all very lavish; 3-sided gallery and 2-level aisles, decorative columns with foliate capitals; decorative plasterwork and open-timber roof; painted, leaded glass.

MANSE: 2-storeys, L-plan front, Gothic porch in re-entrant angle carried upwards with paired lancets; plate glass sash windows.

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.
