Disabled access to both the church and halls was installed in 2006.  The sanctuary can seat  250 people and is fitted with a hearing loop system.  Access to the sanctuary is through the Thistle Chapel and we have a central and two side aisles. In 2011,  the upright pine pews were replaced with cushioned seats, providing increased comfort for worshipers.  We have a modern Allen organ; a Clavinova and a baby grand piano.  With it's good acoustic, the church can be used as a concert or recital venue.
