My Note: From website for Broxburn United Free Church. By a majority of two, members of the West Church adhered to the Continuing Church in 1929 and worshipped in local halls until 1966 when, under the ministry of Rev I Matheson, they acquired the former St Nicholas Parish Church. Church Halls opened 1974.
