Introduction

This church was built in 1833 to replace an earlier chapel of ease which had been on the same site (Chapel Kirk, site no. 10621). The earlier church was demolished due to its small size and this larger church was built to replace it.   The congregation joined with the Erskine Church (site no. 4684) in 1974 and that church became the St. Andrew's Erskine Church. This building was sold and used as an auction house until it was demolished in 1987 to allow a supermarket to be built for Dunfermline Co-operative Society.   This building itself has now been demolished and the new Dunfermline bus station is being built on the site.
