Church Overview

Union of the former Dalziel and St Andrew’s Church of Scotland congregations in September of 1996. The parish of Dalziel has a history stretching back to the 12th century, while St Andrew’s was a daughter church of Dalziel. Our sanctuary was refurbished to a high standard in the spring of 2012, when the pews were replaced with modern seating. At the same time, a Prayer Room was created through partitioning off one of the transepts. A modern audio-visual system was also installed to complement our worship and make the sanctuary suitable for a wide range of community events and concerts. This has enabled us to live stream our services to the Internet on a regular basis.

Erected in 1874, the architect was probably David Thomson. Gothic-style church, of cruciform-plan, with a square 3-stage tower with broach spire. Organ by the German firm of Walcker, dated 1900. This fine and rare example of a musical instrument was restored to full working order in the autumn of 2012. Worship is a sensitive mixture of traditional and modern praise, led by our accomplished Musical Director and sizeable choir. A very warm welcome awaits visitors of all ages in The Kirk at The Cross.
