Old Photograph United Free Church Cults Scotland
Old photograph of the United Free Church in Cults a suburb on the western edge of Aberdeen road in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The church was built as a Free Church in 1844 and was originally a small rectangular building with a square tower. By 1900 this had proved to be too small and a new, larger church was built nearby, opening in 1903. However, this church burnt down in a devastating fire in 1941, leaving only the tower and spire, which were eventually incorporated into the new, and present, church, built in the 1950s. The United Free Church of Scotland, is a Scottish Presbyterian denomination formed in 1900 by the union of the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland and the majority of the 19th century Free Church of Scotland. The majority of the United Free Church of Scotland united with the Church of Scotland in 1929.
