Caldwell Parish Church

About Us

About Us

Caldwell Parish Church (1889) in Uplawmoor, East Renfrewshire, linked on 29 January 2009 with nearby Dunlop Parish Church in East Ayrshire to form a single charge, and transferred to the Presbytery of Irvine and Kilmarnock from the Presbytery of Greenock and Paisley. On 1st September 2023 following re-organisation of Scotland’s Presbyteries a new larger South West Presbytery was formed and the two small local churches joined together in a formal Union to be know as Caldwell and Dunlop Parish Church.

Uplawmoor is 5 miles from Dunlop and Barrhead, 14 miles from Glasgow and 12 miles from Kilmarnock. It is a small rural village surrounded by many live stock farms. It benefits from an excellent primary school, local Inn, Library, well equipped children’s playground, playing field with tennis courts and exercise equipment.

Our Sunday Services are from 10am to 11am each week, with Tea, Coffee and Biscuits available in the rear hall after the service.

There are around 240 members and adherents on the roll with an active Choir, Messy Church and Community Calendar

The church was built in 1889 by the owners of the Caldwell Estates, the Mure family. Prior to this building, a ‘tin church’ or hut was located here and served as a Missionary Church in the 30 years prior to the new 1889 building. The present church has sandstone walls and a slate roof, and is in good condition and in full ecclesiastical use.
