According to Cunningham in 'Romantic Culross', Mr Cunninghame of Balgownie inaugurated a scheme to build the church. The church was completed in 1846 and was fully sanctioned in 1871. It is depicted on the 1860 OS map. Although converted into flats, the exterior has been little altered. The adjacent Stephen Memorial Hall was built in 1883 and was used for Sunday school (listed separately). In 1873, St Kentigern's was bought for use as a manse (see separate list).
