History and Architecture:

In 1923 when the church was first commenced services were held in a local school room until the new church was opened on 18 November 1923.

The first Anglican Church of St Alban the Martyr in Auchenflower was dedicated by Archbishop Sharp on 18 November 1923. The foundation stone of a new brick church was set and blessed by Archbishop Strong in July 1954. The parish was amalgamated with Christ Church, Milton, in 2009, becoming part of the new parish of Auchenflower-Milton.

 The church was closed around 2015-16.
