St Mary's Church dates from 1764 and was extended in 1913 with the addition of the chancel. The building contains some notable Victorian windows in the nave and some exceptionally fine 20th century stained glass in the sanctuary. Many items in the church are gifts in memory of particular persons, or events and make for an interesting discovery of social history.
Visitors are most welcome and the church is usually open in daylight hours in winter and until early evening in summer. All are welcome to join our congregation who worship every Sunday.

Funerals and memorial services are organised in consultation with the family of the deceased, and the interment is available at St. Mary's Churchyard, Burnhouse Road, for parishioners.
A priority of pastoral work is given to those persons in need, sickness or adversity. Counsel penance and absolution is offered as part of the spiritual quest for peace of mind and spirit. The congregation at St. Mary's are making their Christian pilgrimage through life and regularly gather to learn of the Apostles teaching, to speak the prayers of the church, to break bread, and to share in fellowship. Our mission is to preach the Kingdom of Heaven in this parish and beyond. Our hope is for Heaven.
