ActivityThe church was established as a memorial to Reverend George Gilfillan (d 1878) who was minister of School Wynd Church from 1836-1878. He held liberal views and became a famous and popular preacher. The majority of the congregation left School Wynd Church and with Reverend David Macrae formed an independent church. The building was completed in 1889. In 1911 the congregation was divided. The majority of members wanted to change the constitution of the church but the minority were granted the right by court of session to retain the building.
