History and Architecture:

The Church was designed by Voller & Graham built from 1893 to 1926. The erection of the Church was funded by a donation of £1000 from the Mount Morgan millionaire William Pattison which was accepted by the Presbytery on 7 June 1893.

The building was originally constructed in tuck-pointed face brickwork with either stone or rendered facings. The original design of the church had included a tower facing Bolsover Street but at an additional cost of £560 it was omitted.

The rear of the church has a projecting gabled chancel with a low skillion roofed vestry on the southern side. The chancel has a central lancet window at the rear, and a wider lancet recess to the gable. The vestry has a pointed arch doorway at the rear, and a lancet window with expressed drip mould to the southern side.

A Foundation stone in part reads, " St Andrews Presbyterian Church This stone was laid on January 7th June 1893 by Rev Alexander Hay MA DD Minister of the Congregation "Accept the Lord as ???? They labour in vein who built it".
