The property is formed to the west of Arthurlie Street, close to it’s junction with Main Street, and within Barrhead town centre. Main Street is the main arterial route passing through Barrhead and forms the A736 which links the M77 at J2, approximately 2 miles to the east to Irvine, via a number of smaller settlements within Ayrshire. Athurlie Street forms a secondary street which leads from the town centre towards the Auchenback area of the town.
Barrhead itself comprises a small town which serves as a commuter suburb of Glasgow and is located approximately 6 miles to the south west of the City Centre.

The walls are plastered with double height ceiling formed of lath and plaster. There is excellent natural daylighting via large windows to both elevations, enhanced by pendant light fittings to the ceiling. Access to the vestry is from the south-east of the worship area, with this area being formed within one of the rear extensions.
