Several members of the Earlston parish left the Established Church in 1738 and adhered to the Associate Presbytery. After residents of Stitchel joined their congregation, they petitioned in 1746 to be formed into a separate group. This request was refused, but with the Burger Oath controversy, the majority of Earlston parish joined the General Associate, Anti-burgher Synod. In 17501751, the Earlston congregation was joined by members from Gattonside and Galashiels. Shortly after, they built a church and also built another in 1792. They united with the West Church in 1887.
