Ladies Toilet in Church Foyer Area
The ladies toilet in the main foyer area of the church is currently out of use and is likely to remain so for a number of weeks.  There are alternative toilet facilities on the first floor above the session room and more easily accessed facilities on the ground floor of the Rev M A Macleod Memorial Hall.   
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience arising from this and we hope it won’t be too long till the facility is restored.
