HISTORY OF GRANTSHOUSE CHURCH
In 1886 William Grant, son of the founder of Grantshouse village, offered the congregation of Houndwood Free Church the sum of £500 to transfer the church building to a site deemed more appropriate in his own village. Out of the 156 members of the congregation who voted, only 32 were against the offer and so soon afterwards plans were put in motion to transform the Free Church of Houndwood into the Free Church of Grantshouse. Each stone from the original 1847 Houndwood structure was carried on carts to Grantshouse and rebuilt on land obtained from the Renton Estate. William Grant himself laid the foundation stone on 18th August 1887 and a jar was sealed into the pillar behind it. The jar contained a history of the congregation, details of the contractors, copies of the various periodicals and newspapers and 8 coins ranging in value from a farthing to a half crown (it seems that one of these coins even bears an engraving of the Lord’s Prayer). The jar remains undisturbed in its original position to this day. The official opening of the completed church took place on 29th March 1888 amid appropriate celebrations including a soiree in the church itself. And so the church continued to serve the community throughout the ensuing decades until June 1973 when the last service was held and the Grantshouse congregation was relocated- ironically - back to Houndwood. Eventually the Free Church building itself was sold and converted by the present vendor into what is now a fine family home. It stands as a proud testimony to the faith of those who have both sustained it and been sustained by it throughout its history.
