The Church was built in 1831. It replaced an earlier building erected in 1707 and rebuilt in 1744, which had fallen into disrepair.The building in the 1850’s was described as “an elegant building in the modern Gothic style of architecture”, but the rest of the building was demolished in 1931. All that remains is the Belfry Tower.
Records show that there has been a church in Cathcart since the 9th century. Some of the burials in the graveyard date to the 17th century, including the tomb of the Polmadie Martyrs (Robert Thom, Thomas Cook and John Urie) shot by soldiers in 1685 for supporting the Covenanters’ cause.
