Kilwarlin Moravian Church is located in the townland of Corcreeny, Hillsborough.

The Church sits on an east-west axis towards the rear of the site. On its west end it abuts its Manse which in turn is sandwiched between the Church building and Church Hall. There is an attached building to the rear of the Hall which was built to accommodate a Sunday School (now empty) and beyond along the north boundary a carriage shed now in ruins. Sitting behind and to the north of the Church is a burial ground and immediately to the north and west of the Church a Battle Garden intended to reproduce the terrain of the battle of Thermopylae. To the west of the Hall is a raised flat grass area and abutting this is a now failed Dam wall and reservoir (which once fed the pond within the Battle Garden).

At the south boundary is a stone gate screen with cast iron gates and sitting behind a ruined single storey building perhaps once a school. Completing the form and on the other side of the gate screen is a heavily altered gate lodge (perhaps a caretakers cottage) now in private ownership.
