Tuesday 17 May 1870 must have been a truly unforgettable day for the thousands who crowded into Dingwall for the opening of the Church building we still worship in. A moderate estimate from that day say that 6,000 people took part in the day’s proceedings, a large number considering the population of Dingwall at that time was approximately 2,000. The Church was formally opened for public worship by none other than the eminent evangelical preacher from London, Charles Spurgeon.
The church was built in 1870 costing less than £5,000, designed to seat one thousand people. In 2009, the building was totally refurbished with modern seating, heating and updated facilities, allowing the building to remain a significant feature within the area and better equipped to increasingly engage with its community.
