By the 1880s, many of the congregation were living in the new suburbs of Fairview and Clontarf. So in 1888 it was decided at a meeting of Gloucester Street congregation to request Presbytery to transfer the congregation to Clontarf. This request was granted and then sanctioned by the General Assembly on 26th July, 1889. A site was found on the corner of the Howth Road and Clontarf road and the new church was opened in May 1890. A school was also built beside the church and a manse on Haddon Road.
In 2003 the congregation welcomed the members of Ormond Quay & Scots Church and, with sanction of the General Assembly, are now known as Clontarf & Scots Presbyterian Church.
