The richly detailed exterior is of red sandstone from Locharbriggs and the elegant interior features sandstone from nearby Thornhill.
As a non denominational church, The Crichton Memorial Church is available for weddings, graduations, concerts and events and has been host to BBC productions such as Songs of Praise.
