Christianity was mainly spread by missionaries from Ireland beginning in the 5 thC i.e, St Ninian, St Kentigern & St Columba. Protestant martyr George Wishart, burnt at the stake for his faith, is said to have preached to plague victims from the East Port of the city walls in 1544; this last surviving portion of the city walls was renamed ‘Wishart Arch’ in his memory. Presbyterianism has a strong history in the area & city was home to famous 19thC Nigerian Missionary Mary Slessor & Rev Robert Murray McCheyne, both who were used mightily by God in the spread of the Gospel. Of McCheyne, his friend Andrew Bonar spoke of him saying “His lamp was always burning.”

Whilst Robert Murray McCheyne was in Israel in 1839, revival broke out in St Peter’s under the ministry of William Chalmers Burns. On his return, McCheyne discovered 39 regular prayer meetings going on. Some of there were run by children for children. This revival was to continue through the remaining years of McCheyne’s life. Around 800 people sought help from the ministers in Dundee – 400 from McCheyne alone.
