Cray Parish Church, also known as Cray Free Church and Kirkmichael Free Church, is a former Church of Scotland church in Cray, Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It is located in Kirkmichael parish, on the north side of the B951, which forms part of the 64 miles (103 km)-long Cateran Trail.

Built in 1844, it is a Category C listed building. Highbury House, the former manse, built in 1845, stands immediately to the southwest of the church. The church tower was added, with a pyramid slated roof, in 1864. Its bell, made by Vickers and Co. and installed when the tower was renovated, is nearly 29 inches (740 mm) in diameter. Two years later, the manse was extended.
