DIRECTIONS


Note: The church is located down a narrow road; the entrance is concealed between houses and Mearns Castle High School. There is a church sign at the top of the road pointing to the lane. GPS USERS: If you have plan to use a GPS to find the church, please use the post code for Mearns Castle High School: G77 5GU as this will guide you nearer to church entrance lane and not, potentially, to the road behind the church where there is no access.
