The Forsyth Hall
The Forsyth Hall is an excellent modern facility built in 2000, and is available for hire at very competitive rates:
During the pandemic, under very difficult circumstances, the church Development Team (Allan Ritchie, Laura Barron, Francois Van Niekerk, Ian Mackenzie and Paul McKeown) helped see our Annexe project through to completion. This was the culmination of five years planning and fundraising and has afforded a superb suite of buildings which should last us well into the future.
Around 40% of the cost of this build was raised from the congregation, and the remainder was sourced from funders who saw the worth of the project and were willing to support it financially.
