The church sits higher than the surrounding streets and buildings, creating an imposing position. The brick and slate structure is in good condition and the church is in full ecclesiastical use.


Description

Craigiebank Church is a cruciform building built in the 1930’s and set on a slightly elevated site on the junction of Greendykes Road and Craigie Drive to the East of the city centre.  It is a relatively plain brick built structure coated in wet render and with a red tiled roof.  There is a simple square tower at the front in which there is an arched entrance, a series of shallow buttresses down the sides and plain arched windows.  The windows, entrance way and buttresses are edged with red sandstone colouredconcrete blocks as is the tower.  The building runs roughly North to South with a hall attached to the rear (North) of the church.
