This Grade A-listed building had a complete restoration in 1999 with assistance from Historic Scotland.  The pipe organ was built in 1867, enlarged in 1912 and restored with the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2008.

9 Nelson Street, Greenock,  PA15 1TP
Greenock - Westburn Church of Scotland - Image 1
The Church building is of special interest as it is has Grade A listing. The present building has been used for public worship since 1841. In 1855, the steeple was added to the Church structure. In 1912, the rounded chancel area was added and an organ built by Binns of Leeds was installed. The chancel area has three stained glass panels which were designed by Douglas Strachan.   
 
Over the years, union and re-adjustment has been ongoing. As a result of this, the church building has changed its name several times – ‘The West Kirk’, The Old Kirk’, ‘St. Luke’s’ and now the Westburn Church. Over the past few years, extensive refurbishment has been carried out with an Audio Visual system having been recently installed.


Building Date: 1841
An exhibition, Organ Recitals and tea/coffee will be available.
