There have been two previous churches on this site. The first was dedicated in 1243 and was replaced in 1765 by a thatched roof design. It had seating for 400, the first church in Scotland to have this luxury. The earth floor was replaced by slabs in 1791. This building had fallen into disrepair by the early 19th Century, so an architect from Durham, Ignatius Bonomi, was commissioned to design the building you see today. It was completed in 1835 and over 700 people attended the first service. The church bell was retained from the previous building.
There are a number of old gravestones from the 18th Century in the churchyard, with figures carved on the reverse side. The Home's of Paxton House and Wedderburn are interred here.
There is parking next to the church. The graveyard is a bit overgrown.
