The church, formerly Erskine Parish Church, was built in 181314; the architect was David Hamilton. The small castellated vestry at the eastern end was added in 190203, and is by William Daniel McLennan. The church was built using stone taken from a freestone quarry about a mile to the east. Old OS maps mark the former site of a church, the predecessor of this one, close to the centre of the kirkyard. A charter by Florentius (Florence, Bishop of Glasgow in the first decade of the 13th century) mentions the church of Erskine ("Irschin").
