Woodside Congregational Church from Annals of Woodside and Newhills, by Patrick Morgan (1886)
The churches in Woodside have always provided a strong community base where various clubs and social groups could gather. From bible classes to indoor bowling and a wide range of youth clubs, these locally designed buildings remain an important part of the area.

The Woodside Congregational Church building shown in this image was built in the year 1867. It replaced the congregation's previous building on the same site that was known as the Cotton Chapel. The construction of the later church is usually credited to the liberality of Provost William Leslie.

The congregation temporarily closed down in around 1994. It started meeting again after about three years but unfortunately the congregation could no longer use the church building on Great Northern Road.

Woodside Congregational Church currently meet in the nearby Printfield Portacabin and the church building is derelict.
