Greenock Churches - history and information

I've noticed that there seems to be a bit of interest in posts about the history of Greenock's churches - both those still being used as places of worship, those that are now being used for other purposes and those that are Greenock's lost churches.  I thought I would make things easier by listing some of my church posts here.  Click on the highlighted text to be taken to the information.

On West Shaw Street is the former Martyrs Free Church.  It is a lovely building.

The former Greenbank Church on Kelly Street has an interesting history.

On West Stewart Street and now a furniture warehouse is the former St Andrew's Free Church.

The West Blackhall Street Chapel is a well known landmark at Gray Place in Greenock.

The former Methodist Church on Ardgowan Street is still standing.

Westburn Parish Church on Nelson Street is another beautiful building dating back to 1841.

Unfortunately Nelson Street EU Church has now been demolished.

Struthers Memorial Church is another lovely church.

On Union Street is the wonderful Lyle Kirk.

St Patrick's Church at Orangefield has some wonderful sculpture.

For a complete view of Westburn Church and some of its history download the history booklet here.

Over the next few weeks, I hope to add more information about Greenock's churches and their history so don't forget to check back regularly.
