Saint Andrew's Church
The ministers of Saint Peter's Church since
1833 are listed below:
Saint Peter's Church of Scotland was opened on the first Sunday of 1833. "A neat and plain church with a tower or spire to contain 1800 sitters and well adapted to hearing the minister. " The fine site is apparent as one approaches the town from the River Bridge. The interior of the church is attractive in it's layout with the pulpit and communion table at centre. In 1914 the present pipe organ was installed and the downstairs pews were replaced by the present comfortable seating centre. The pews upstairs are original. The memorial windows at either side of the pulpit are of particular note. It is thought that the founder of the Boys Brigade ,Sir William Smith, born at nearby Pennyland Farm, may have worshipped here as a boy.
