John Honeyman, partner at the firm, lived in Bridge of Allan and was member of the congregation.

Mackintosh designed the chancel furniture, consisting of the pulpit, the communion table, the chancel rail and the organ screen. He used many of the motifs now associated with Mackintosh.

The church is still home to an active congregation, as of writing this it is possible to view it on Saturdays 10:00 to 16:00 from June to September. Friendly guides are in attendance for any questions you might have.
