The original Church was founded around 1190 and was the first Parish Church in Scotland to be organised according to the Reformed Faith. It is the Parish Church for the City of Dundee. Civic occasions such as the Kirkin’ of the Council and Guildry Services as well as Remembrance Day are held here. It boasts a fully detailed Black Watch memorial.
The Church was built as St Mark's Church between 1868 and 1869. It was designed by Pilkington and Bell in a free Gothic style typical of Frederick T Pilkington. The church was extended in 1879 by Ireland and MacLaren.
Featuring superb stained-glass windows and a raised timbre ceiling, this A-listed church is a unique example of circular congregational seating and aisles. The tower and spire have recently undergone conservation repairs, grant-assisted by Historic Scotland and Heritage Lottery Fund.
A project is currently underway to install Energy Efficiency Measures to the church, grant-assisted by Climate Challenge Fund. You can see the progress of this work during your visit.

The Morgan is an imposing landmark building of tremendous architectural significance, originally designed in 1862 by the Edinburgh architects John Dick Peddie and Charles Kinnear. By the early 20th century, pressure for more suitable and additional accommodation resulted in extensive internal alterations including a large three story wing to the north and was completed in 1915, designed by the Architect James Langlands.
Due to a fire in 2001 which destroyed much of the building. It was rebuilt using the original facade and much of the internal appearance was kept and re-opened in August 2004.
