This church has been known by a number of different names, depending on who was using the church. It has been known as Fullarton Free Church, Wilson Fullarton Church, St Paul's Church and the Fullarton Church Centre. It is currently used by the Church of Scotland, it seems. It was built on the site of a Carmelite Friary (site 08458). The current Church Centre is used for youth organisations, keyboard lessons, a Brethren place of worship and as a café. The buuilding is in good condition and in ecclesiastical use and bythe communtiy. It has sandstone walls and a slate roof. The river enbankment wall, situated next to the church building, was said to be in a dangerous state (in 1992) and would need replacing shortly. It is not certain if this has happened, and what would happen if it collapsed. The church would appear to be under threat if this happened. Researched by J. Fish, compiled by J. Dowling, 10/12/03.
