Dunbeth Parish Church merged with Gartsherrie and Maxwell Churches in the mid-1990s. The then-formed St Andrews Church now meet in the old Gartsherrie Church Building. Dunbeth Church was sold and has been redeveloped for flats.

The plaques for Dunbeth Church are situated in a small "chapel" behind the main church:

This plaque for the Second World War was originally on a table and was removed and remounted as a plaque after the union within the Churches.
