Gourock formed part of the pre-Reformation Parish of Inverkip, mentioned in Papal registers of 1216 –27. In 1878 Archbishop Eyre of Glasgow arranged for the construction of a chapel-school to be dedicated to St Ninian. The original church was in the Early English style with a school room on the lower level. The airy extension dates from 1982, the year Pope John Paul II visited Glasgow, and was designed by local architect J G Quigley. The altar contains marble from the Papal altar at Bellahouston. The parish has a small museum, mosaics by Frank Tritschler, Stained glass by Dom Ninian Sloan of Pluscarden Abbey, and a chasuble fashioned from an original Paisley shawl by Debbie Gonet.
Building Date: 1879, extended 1982
