John Honeyman, 1878-80

Category A Listed

This highly ornate Italianate style church is located on the south eastern corner of Cathedral Square. Discover how the eight beautiful stained glass windows in the lower Sanctuary were made, and view the Historic Pipe Organ installed by Foster & Andrews 1887.

The Church stands at the southeast corner of Cathedral Square behind the park area. It is set North to South with the main entrance facing West onto Cathedral Square.  Viewing this West face from the park, you will see four Corinthian columns on top of which, standing on podia, are four statues.  These represent the four evangelists: Matthew; Mark; Luke and John.  Above the two doors you will see two more statues, representing St. Peter and St. Paul.  The sanctuary is U shaped with the chancel at the south end. The centrally placed pulpit dominates the chancel with its twin stairway for access.  You will also see our Historic Pipe Organ installed by Foster & Andrews 1887 in its original condition. You can see the Certificate Grade 1 from the British Institute of Organ Studies in recognition of this fact which states as follows “It is therefore listed in the Institutes Register of Historic Pipe Organs as being an instrument of importance to the National Heritage and one deserving careful preservation for the benefit of future generations”. We are so proud of the Organ and have it maintained regularly. It is used for our Sabbath Service. If you play then you can ask to have a go on the Organ. You can also experience a floral display organised by the Ladies Orange Association and they will be in attendance to speak to you.

Discover how the eight beautiful stained glass windows in the lower Sanctuary were made with a presentation showing the progress made, in photograph and word, during their making and some of the Members involved will be there also should you wish to speak to them. The project was entered into a competition held by the Incorporation of Wrights, Trades House of Glasgow for Stained Glass, you can see the Certificate received when first place was achieved
