School Wynd United Presbyterian Church


The Rev. John Willison of Dundee, author of popular theological works, cooperated with the Four Brethren in testifying against the abuses of the Established Church and led his congregation to expect that he would secede with them. But instead he took part against them. Several people withdrew from his ministry and acceded to the Associate Presbytery. They joined with Seceders in Forfarshire and the Mearns and received supply of sermon as the Presbytery was able to afford it. In 1745 the Presbytery divided the Association into separate congregations. At the Breach in 1747, the majority of this congregation adhered to the Associate Burgher Synod. (See also Bell Street.)
