No longer used as a church, it is now called ‘One Wellwynd’ and is a social enterprise hub.

Old Wellwynd Church was built in 1847 and is C listed. It is situated next to Airdrie town centre and overlooks he associated burial ground which pre-dates the church. One Wellwynd Church is notable as being the first public building in Airdrie and was continually is use until 1995. It then became redundant as a place of worship and also derelict.



The refurbishment was completed and One Wellwynd was opened on 21st February 2011.

Both the WW1 & WW2 Memorials have been re-erected in the main foyer.



To The Glory of God and In Loving Memory of Those From This Congregation Who Gave Their Lives in the World-War.

1939 – 1945
