Known affectionately as ‘The Toon Kirk’, Wellpark Mid Kirk is home to a lively congregation which cherishes its building, a handsome classical church with an ionic portico and steeple modelled on St. Martin-in-the Fields. The design for the façade was supplied by Lord Cathcart (apparently obtained in Bristol), the designer of the body of the church was James Ewing.
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.
