Alloa Ludgate Church of Scotland (2023 Streetview) on Bedford Place and Ludgate. The church history page on the church website says it replaced a "much simpler 18th century building". Its category C listing dates it to 1863, and older maps show it as United Presbyterian. NS 8837 9268.

A Baptist Church used to stand on the north side of East Vennel at NS 8877 9275. Shown on a map of 1861-2, it was presumably surplus to requirements when the above Alloa Baptist opened in 1881. This source says "The Baptist Church purchased the Episcopal Church in East Vennel in 1847 before moving to its present location in 1881". Its site (the car park) was seen by Streetview in 2016.
