There has been a church at Kirkby, at least, since 1826 when the earlier chapel was built. The church must have been in existence for some years before that but had not been discovered by the main body of Churches of Christ until 1854. William McDougll from Wigan, conducted a revival at Kirkby in 1874, the results of which increased the membership from 38 to 101 in two short years. This led to the construction of the present building in 1876. From Kirkby, churches were founded at Askam, Lindal, Ulverston and Dalton. William and Mary Robinson are buried in the churchyard (this is the only U. K. Church of Christ with a cemetery on the church property). William Robinson (1888-1963) was a schoolmaster, soldier, Bible student, evangelist, lecturer, professor, author, college principal and one committed to Christian unity.
